Boomkat Product Review:
Mighty twelve from Boxcutter here, featuring the killer "Philly" on the A-Side (as featured on the Space & Time compilation), and new track "Endothermic" on the flip. For the uninitiated, "Philly" is the perfect introduction to Boxcutter's multi-generic production style, incorporating elements from broken beat, jazz, dubstep, electronica and dub to create a kind of beautifully mongrel sound - unafraid to step into the breech, forever looking outside the confines of any one pigeon hole. "Endothermic" on the flip is a real treat, a laid back affair couched in fragile synth sequences and un-hurried progressions that set the scene perfectly. The rugged bass grind that accompanies most of the track shifts the focus away from purely feathery materials and weighs proceedings down with an uneven surface that maintains perfect balance between hard-edged and soft-centred musical stylings. Great stuff - highly recommended.
