Boomkat Product Review:
Kid Antoine shots a hyper-lucid set of ballroom/B-more/grime mutations with the 'Proximity' EP for Her Records. Graduating from the Her Records Volume 3 compilation to a full-fledged solo debut, Antoine sits very comfortably amidst the likes of Cyphr, Sudanim, and Fraxinus. From the top, 'Recon' bounces a piquant sci-fi take on B-more beside sparse elegance of the title track and the bittersweet tang of 'Motion Sensor', making connections between '80s Japanese digital ambient and modern grime. Likewise, the breezy clarity of 'Airburst' draws links between contemporary computer game melodies and UK/US club tribalism, while Miss Modular renders 'Recon' closer to current Lisbon styles of Príncipe Discos.
