Boomkat Product Review:
Overlook genuflects at the altar of mid ‘90s Photek, Dillinja and Source Direct with thee exquisite, classic jungle styles of Misty and Motif with London’s Repertoire label.
Quite seriously, show us a better example of retro-vintage jungle fetishism from the last five years and we’d be very fucking surprised if it’s better than this platter.
Misty is the perfect scene-setter, arriving with forlorn beach sounds and diva licks right out of the LTJ textBukem before filtering a terrapin-snap breaks thru an incredible floorshow of weightless gymnastics, the sort of ecstatically disciplined stuff that keeps you stepping and rolling 2 foot off the ground for the duration. The levels of detail are frankly stupendous and seemingly only a set-up for the B-side…
Motif is the sort of flawless tech-stepper that should earn him a platinum Metalheadz badge, coming on lip-bitingly strong from dank, Burial-esque atmospheres to dive thru an assault course of fake-out breaks and booming hard-step detonations with a beautifully pensile sense of ghost-in-the-machine pressure.
