Boomkat Product Review:
Boss level, raggo D&B bombs by Samurai Music overlord Geoff Presha for the headstrong
If we’re not mistaken, this is Presha’s first volley of solo productions, and we’re definitely not mistaken in saying they’re fiercely on the money for nasty D&B tekkers. ‘Mainliner’ lives up to his moniker with a tightly controlled hardstep groove and acephalic choral swarms ratcheting the tension for until a proper outburst of Dom & Roland-like amens.
‘Vendetta’ yokes back to halfstep trample and bassbin bullying swang, while ‘Rats’ cracks out the drumfunk with robotic jazz drummer chops and murderous amens, and ‘The Spell’ follows suit, bowing to the likes of Photek and Hokusai with proper martial D&B funk and darkside technoid synths. He may not be breaking the mould here, but he’s playing into it very strongly.
