Boomkat Product Review:
Trus’me returns with a brooding, shades-on and Detroit-styled electro and deep house sound in his slick 4th album.
Moving with the times, he jettisons much of his vintage funk and soul sample palette in favour of taut, lissom synth strokes and veiled vibes across nine tracks of sensual, shadowy and effortless grooves. It references a more European sound, but in the way that Detroit dudes would draw inspiration from sci-fi soundtracks, EBM, industrial and electro and then flip them with their own flavour and swerve.
The result is strong highlights such as the swaggering, snaky kerb-crawler The Unexplained and the Robert Hood-alike Motor City soul of Dark Flow, plus a total winner called Our Future (swear he’s robbed those pads from somewhere that we can’t place our finger) that recalls Urban Tribe’s remix of Nina Kraviz, and certainly the Drexciyan charger, So High.
