Boomkat Product Review:
The Dub label once again, one of our favourite imprints and another surefire winner. Funckarma's fifth 'part' is their strongest to date - 4 tracks of advancedmusic at it's most tantalising. 'Strip' reverberates with a wall of melodies and echoes underpinned by a complex yet crisp beat structure, Autechre come to mind off course, but killer territory nonetheless. Head for the flip and 'Lignite' - a blue strip of gorgeous slow beats and staggered time signatures : a slight departure here for the brothers Funcken, a sublime jazz double bassline underpins the track as the accoustic(esque) percussion develops and becomes more complex. Cinematic music at it's most evocative. 'Loaded' is last up, crisp metallic beats set the scene before a chorus of epic tones introduce themselves and sprinkle their surroundings with blue neon colour. Killer stuff.
