Boomkat Product Review:
Killer, freaked R&B, pop and tarraxho zingers from one half of Lisbon/Glasgow’s Yong Yong, Luar Domatrix, spinning perpendicular to Principe, Equiknoxx and Hakuna Kulala in wicked screwball style . TIP!!!!
Favoured by the likes of Jon K and Debonaire on NTS, Luar Domatrix sees the Portuguese artist proceed further from the Hype Williams esque Yong Yong into club-ready sidewinders influenced as much by the innovations of late ‘90s R&B as up-to-the-minute styles from his home city, central Africa and the madness of Glasgow.
The fractious Goooose-on-a-Linn drum flex of ‘Mil Busy Babies’ is a strong place to start, while ‘Sense of Style’ comes off like a playful Nidia-meets-Errorsmith joint, and the frenetic energy of Tanzanian singeli and Slikback’s hardcore futurism is jacked direct into the reckless ‘Poema’, while ‘FTM’ could almost be some fantasy link-up between Time Cow and Timbaland.
Aye, it’s all very, very good.
