Boomkat Product Review:
Notorious sonic shape-shifter Tadd Mullinix (aka Dabrye) has joined up with long-time collaborator D'Marc Cantu to create 2 AM/FM, a new extension of the acid house built by the pioneers of the 1980s and 90s. Raw, polyrhythmic drum boxes underscore vampiric vocal treatments and cavernous synth lines that parallel Mullinix's acclaimed work as James T. Cotton, but with a slower, brooding edge. The true core of 2 AM/FM exists in the details, as the addition and subtraction of subtle nuances and rhythmic shifts allow the duo to forge a set of mesmerizing sonic labyrinths. Mashed rhythms overlap and entwine with groaning, processed samples and sinister melodies to create a rich formula - like a lost classic from the heyday of Chicago house.
