Boomkat Product Review:
Drawing for more premier cuts from the increasingly blurred parameters of hiphop, future funk and electronica, the impeccably curated Producer series from Fat City offers up two wicked nuggets from Dabrye and Mike Slott. This one takes cues from swinging electro soul and post-Dilla slump-funk, with Mike Slott's 'Home' shuffling in on some smartly broken drums somehow connecting the rattling 2-step syncopations with a slow-mo electro-soul swing and a droning haze of electro synthlines. Dabrye's 'Walk' cut on the flip makes the electro influence even more overt with a slow and sticky rhythm built from a palette of modified 808's and eerie vocal samples pitched way down and psychedelically mixed with bleeping electronica motifs for a very special joint. It's probably the best Dabrye track we've heard since his mix of King Midas Sound's 'Cool Out' and therefore rather essential. Killer!
