Boomkat Product Review:
Decimated club constructions from Strasbourg’s Nunu on L.A.-based blog-turned-label The Astral Plane, who’ve previously hosted a series of killer mixes from the underground’s vital peripheries.
The Mind Body Dialogue EP is very much rooted in the diffused, convention-disturbing club dynamics of Fade 2 Mind, Halycon Veil and the Janus crew, but is also inflected with a virulent hardcore aesthetic that we’d compare with certain strains of lat ‘90s flashcore from his fellow frenchman La Peste.
It’s a sensational exercise in sparking up your 3D proprioceptions, precisely attacking from every viable angle across six skeletal, post-human structures perfused by computerised wraiths, BM spirits and glitching holographic soulbots.
Bookended by two big highlights in the lush hyper violence of Punani and the picnoleptic rave recall of Cog, Nunu insistently challenges the senses with clashes of computerised brutalism and R&B booty-ache in Mind Body Dialogue, and to dizzying degrees with the ballistic hyper funk and begging souls of Gear.
Tipped to the headstrong; fans of Rabit, Wwwings, M.E.S.H.
