Boomkat Product Review:
Killer, mutant jungle and Bristol bass functions from Rhythmic Theory, including a seriously strong remix of Pessimist
Originally issued in 2017, the EP somehow escaped our full attention until recently, when we encountered the full might of RT’s ‘Choppage’ mix of ‘Empty House’ by Pessimist. Hewing close to Pessimist’s ruggedly stripped down sound, RT injects his own flavour with patented bass drum clout and tail-chasing, smoke-curl breakbeat edits that really set it apart.
The rest of the EP is smart, too, from the Batu-esque rolige of ‘Outlawed From Reality’, to the dank lean of ‘Cyclic Motion’ and the cavernous stepper ’Rachael’s Theme’, but to be fair the first track is the one!
