Boomkat Product Review:
Proper UK rhythm pressure from Paleman, rolling out a super sturdy first shot on his eponymous label that arguably betters his previous aces for Loefah’s Swamp81, School and 81 imprints.
A-side; Talk Louder is a ‘floor-dominating side synching dread bass rumble and dry, sparking drums to a tucked, powerful momentum pecked with nagging rap samples to cool and pinch your swagger. Killah business.
Flipside; Ice Parade highlights Paleman’s crisp and smokily spacious sound design skills, feeding a reticulated rhythm of pinging rimshots, cowbells and reverse bass hits thru a fractal hall of mirrors to sound out one of the most minimal, inventive sides from this scene in ’16.
