Boomkat Product Review:
Deep house and UKF veteran DJ IC meets rising Afrohouse producer Jim Mastershine for some of the deepest, proggy bits on DJ Supa D’s burgeoning label
The duo find a fine line between SA-styled gqom and darker UK deep tech in all three goes. Moving as one, they steadily raise tension levels with nagging bass arps and monk chants shackled to a trampling groove in ‘Exodus,’ before working up the shades-on, room-scanning synth leads and clipped, martial drive of ‘No Limitations’ with its tightly tucked amapiano trills. Going dolo, DJ IC distills over a decade of dancefloor suss into the escalating burn of ‘Higher Level,’ weaving ‘90s chase-trance arps and cold bleeps with syncopated drums for some furtive drama in the dance.
Another winner from Housupa.
