Boomkat Product Review:
Chinatown, NYC’s Justin Tripp and Brain Close, a.k.a. Georgia, saddle up for Berlin’s promising yung Kashual Plastik label with their sights set on a stranger, sweetly dissonant future ‘floor in No Urtext, No Ursituation.
Leading on from the syncretic psychedelia of their Like Comment LP and corresponding remix 12” for Meakusma, they still cut a pair of freaky figures with four variegated styles written to a perfectly curdled, personalised sort of tuning system and meter.
The title cut scales and swirls around a motorik quickstep sounding like a microtonal take on Suicide, beside the screwed vortex of Excerpt I. And things get even odder on the flip with a squeezy mix of dry but sloshing drums and Ethiopiques-esque refrains in Middle East Broadway, whilst Westie veers off into the same dancehalls where you may find Rashad Becker’s notional species.
