Boomkat Product Review:
Space Afrika spool out a 2nd collection of frayed, intimate house and ambient electronics for Where To Now? following 'Above The Concrete / Below The Concrete' (2014).
The four tracks on 'Primrose Avenue' distill a decayed, narcotic strain of house from elements of NYC garage swing, Berlin dub house and that Manc-y basement aesthetic, all shaded in deep delphic tones and ferric clag..
'Contemplation' opens with a phasing grey skied ambient panorama, giving way to the gritted Fred P-style gait of 'Resolutions' and setting a poised midnight momentum that carries thru the blunted swang of 'The Way Home' and the dawning, bittersweet morning-after vibes of 'The Sudden Walk'.
