Boomkat Product Review:
Belfast’s BLOOM returns from the dark with ‘Nutrient’, his first outing since remixing tracks from Björk’s ‘Vulnicura’ three years ago
Lest we forget, Bloom’s trio of releases for Visionist’s Lost Codes, Mr. Mitch’s Gobstopper, and Craylegs between 2012-2014 were key moments in the instrumental grime resurgence, effectively taking the style in gyroscopic 3D space.
With ‘Nutrient’ he follows a line also taken by Rabit, to frolic in the ruins of dance music’s recent past (and future?) with pulverised traces of grime and sic fi FX whipped into an asymmetric, keening blatz of weightless post-hardcore torque and cinematic shrapnel.
