Boomkat Product Review:
Muggy mutant downstrokes from Apulati Bien ov Paris/Brussels crew Outreglot, doing lo-fi alien rap, juke and spannered, noisy audness in their own style for the excellent Promesses
Working shades away from styles also explored by Slikback and his Hakuna Kulala crew outta Central/East Africa or the PRR! PRR! lot in Belgium, Apulati Bien restlessly shifts patterns on ‘OO:NÉ’ from the insectoid scuttle and budge of ‘EPOC’ to munted rap on ‘HUMID’ with Zouccrashbaby, taking in the polytemporal G-Force of his killer ‘RIZ-VASTOS’ ft. Lord Cham, mutant Footwork in ’TARIF’ and ‘HARAMARA’, grimy cut-ups in ‘OPTON AÏZ’, and freaky gamelan in ‘LIL ALEX 2930’ ft. Santini.
A big look for anyone investigating mutant fringes of the modern dance.
