Boomkat Product Review:
The new 4 Lux 12” drops 5 tracks in our lap of varying breaks and beats. The title track has a long buildup of cinematic atmosphere and the drops to a live sounding hip hop jam, fat slow beats creep up and finish the track. Though the second track ‘Snow Black’ has phat acid bass surrounded by breakbeat drums almost jazz style, but tight as you like and would find favour with those who are on the emerging broken beat scene. Flip for more hiphop action on the DJ Shadow-esque ‘2 give tree’, with dark backing strings that follow the crawling beats to create a cool if somewhat dark groove. An ace and varying 12” that will appeal to lots of beat heads.
