Boomkat Product Review:
Ace house and jungle grubbers from NYC’s Rob Chambers, chasing up his 12” of junglist screwballs with a broader mix of styles landing somewhere between Anthony Shakir, Akufen and Rezzett.
After making a head-turning debut impression with the deep, agitated jungle pressure of his ‘Estrella’ 12” in 2016, RCHMBRS spun his groove wilder and along other axes on its 2018 follow-up. Applying the same restless edit tekkers to deep New York house, he comes up with wicked results in the first two, recalling Anthony Shakir in a hall of mirrors with the glancing, fractal swang and parry of ‘Passports,’ before twisting out like a frazzled AceMoMa jam with Matthew Herbert or Akufen in the jazzy jiggle of ‘Sliced Mango.’
However, if you’re here for more of his mad deep sidespin on ‘90s jungle, make sure to check the 8min+ of steppers chicanery and diffracted chords in ‘Find The Mood,’ hitting between the eyes of Acemo’s jungle experiments and the washed out feel of Lukid’s Rezzett or Refreshers joints.
