Boomkat Product Review:
Unimpeachable neo grime, experimental footwork, hybrid trap, and brutalist acid from NYC mainstays DJ SWISHA and Kush Jones. Serious bass flex fer fans of Rashad, Mumdance, Green Velvet and DJ Manny.
Anyone moaning that there was no good dance music released over quarantine needs to peep this immediately. DJ SWISHA and Kush Jones are trusted NYC brand names at this stage with sprawling varied output, but this collaborative EP inches both their sounds to the next level. Opener 'Snare Track' is most impressive, a lithe nu-grime hybrid that seems to reference Youngstar's enduring 'Pulse X' and Novelist and Mumdance's 'Take Time' while throwing in jungle snares and chop snares and still sounding spacious?
'Torcida' is faster and denser, as rolling hyper-footwork bass backs up whistles and Latin percussion, while title track 'Outta Bounds' picks an acid groove, squelching over doubletime kicks and brittle claps like Phuture on +8. Kush Jones drops pummeling solo banger 'GTB' and SWISHA is kind enough to slow it down on his remix, flipping it into a slithering club-trap shaker.
