Boomkat Product Review:
Beaumont follows up his outstanding debut for the Boxcutter-affiliated Kinnego Records with a ruder, more chiselled single on Hot Flush. The elegance of 'Blush Response' is still there on the 'Never Love Me' EP, but now steeled with a discernibly heavier club edge. Finding a handsome poise between 'Cocktail' soundtrack-era Tangerine Dream and modern hyperBass Boogie, the title track sets off thrilling synth flares and vocoders over tuff kick/snare syncopation and club-satisfying chords, while 'Rendez-Vous' pushes into slow/fast, cybersensual Trance, kinda like Araabmuzik meets Laurel Halo. The two shorter cuts, 'Uptown' and 'Verona Beach' are similarly evocative, gazing out over wavey Electrofunk and dramatic arpeggios punctuated with power-slyde snares. Tipped for the debonaire hi-rollers - you know who you are.
