Boomkat Product Review
'Mikoyan' marks another highpoint in the catalogues of Berlin's Zhark Recordings and it's producers, Kareem and Mes. Kareem contributes three tracks; the pulsing, underwater throbs of 'Escape From NY' - located somewhere to the darkside of Rob Hood or Basic Channel - besides two bleak and blunted instrumental neck snappers called 'Mikoyan' and 'Where Are You Gonna Hide'. However, for our money the best cut is 'Untitled' by the mysterious Mes (or Wes, take your pick); an offset, skanking Dub Techno roller with mesmerizing organ riff strongly reminding of Dettmann & Klock's 'Places Like This'. Recommended!
