Boomkat Product Review:
UK ‘nuum reductionist Basic Rhythm grinds and creeps to a housier groove on their first one with Bristol’s Hypercolour
Throwing back to the way UK rave music has long crabbed aspects of US house, Anthoney J. Hart joins the dots between Dego and Theo Parrish in three keen distillations of deep, garage, and broken beat house flavours.
‘Pepper’ sounds out Afro-Latinate percussion on a swollen, hip-gripping bass grind pushed to the limits, and the killer ‘3am On The Corner’ hustles harder with whipsmart reverse kickdrum edits, jaw-slapping claps and wiggy sax lines bound to lather the dance. ‘Moonlight Flip’ meanwhile checks for the enduring influence of dancehall and dembow rhythms on UK broken beats with a unique charge of syncopated, electroid swag.
