Boomkat Product Review:
Original emosh rave and rap collage from US producer The Range, a bit of an anomaly on Domino, channelling a vein of ‘00s electronica and big stage dance music akin to Jacques Greene, Zomby, early Joy O or Clams Casino
Arriving five years on from acclaim for the ‘Potential’ (2016) album, which saw The Range parse the Internet’s emerging platforms for sampled slivers of human spirit, his follow-up adapts that strategy to a dance-pop sound no doubt primed for big festival and gig stages. Bookended by a pair of aerial breakbeat rave rollers in the very Joy O-esque ‘Bicameral’, and sweeping design of ‘Violet’, the results feel to distill the past decade of emosh dancefloor movements in a way that’s giving us a strange sense of temporal warpage right now, marking a strange sense of detachment from pre-covid times with its streamlined renovation of hip hop electronica a la Clams Casino on ‘1995’, and a Tri Angle-esque turn of witch-house grime on ‘Urethane’, The Weekend-Like R&B soul burn on ‘Ricercar’, and even rounds of ‘Wearing My Rolex’-era electro house on ‘Relegate’, with ‘Every Good Thing’ tapping into that Holy Other style, but with a twist of early Plastikman acid. Hard to believe we’re feeling nostalgia for the ’00’s and ‘10s, but that’s how it goes in ’22?
