Boomkat Product Review:
Smart new 4-track EP from Dark Sky on Modeselektor's increasingly hyperactive 50 Weapons imprint. 'Speeding Blue' is a nice 'n oily little number, delicately ravey chords bending around galloping, post-UKF snares and rising subs - swung house perfection, basically. Neon is on a techier tip, slinky 'Show Me Love'-style riffage colliding with distant diva strains across a broken 4/4 superbly styled for the steppers. On 'The Lick' teams almost sino-grimey licks over a lean breakbeat house riddim, and 'Be Myself' comes over like a more tracky, Continental-friendly answer to Swamp81's raw 808 bangers. This is really a top-notch EP, and if like us you've been biding your time waiting for Dark Sky to properly deliver the goods, you'll be pleased to know the wait is over. Lean, mean dancefloor hybrids, emphatically 2011-style, and highly recommended.
