Boomkat Product Review:
London’s Kouslin dances in the cracks between dembow-dancehall and D&B with the sort of bare bones, slinky dexterity we’ve come to expect from Peverelist’s Livity Sound.
The ‘Patterns’ EP is Kouslin’s follow-up to an ace ‘2020 Vision EP’ that appeared at the cusp of the pandemic and best expressed this mutant motion after early 12”s with Durkle Disco and Mdnght Records. These four new tracks refine previous examples into mercurial, laminar flows of syrupy subs and piquant, syncopated percussion that can’t help but exert a very UK-styled, diffractive flex on prevailing Afro-Latin club currents - as we’ve been doing since the ‘70s.
Dembow’s signature snare on the 3rd crisply punctuates a pitching, lysergic slosh of chromatic electronics in ‘Why Don’t You Don’t’, before he doubles it up on ‘Five Four’ with a crafty calculation of dembow-driven D&B fractals. The torque of late ‘90s ragga more heavily underpins the rugged headlong tilt of ‘King’, going off like Pessimist and Digital on an acid dancehall flex, and the iridescent arps of ‘Michael’ gives more melodic relief, juxtaposed with skiller percolated subs primed for DJs to blend it double timed.
