Boomkat Product Review:
Following last year's '100% Galcher' reissue comes this companion set, a handful of tracks written around the same time in 2013, cuts from the 'Nu Day' EP and 2014's RA mix, plus a Willow remix of 'I Neva Seen'.
It's gratifying to see 'Come Over' - a Galcher staple that featured prominently on the producer's 2014 RA mix, alongside tracks from MF DOOM, Ka, LFO, Spaceghostpurrp and Kenji Kawai - make it to a proper album release. The track plays us in to 'Lustwerk II', an odds 'n sods collection that hoovers up a few loosies and bundles them with gear Lustwerk produced in the same period. So unreleased slow burner 'This is How We Roll' is nestled up against a disarming vocal version of '100% Galcher' biggie 'Outside The Club' - for our money one of Lustwerk's most slippery Gemini approximations.
Willow's refix of 'I Neva Seen' is brilliantly understated, mangling the original's bass-heavy groove into a prickly, snare-heavy throb of chipmunked vocals and dissonant organ vamps. Then the record is finished off with three deep as you like ass shakers from 'Nu Day' - 'Fate', 'Chillin' in the Booth' and the sensual '216'. Lustwerk is always essential, and if you've missed any of these tracks 'Lustwerk II' is a doozy.
