Boomkat Product Review:
Batu becomes the latest flesh picked up for XL’s rave 12” programme with the tense, gnashing flex of Rebuilt, which rolls out four of his grubbiest, oily and slithering creations to date.
Rebuilt catches him sweeping huge subs under murkily fluid drill drums reframed into a technoid slosh with perfectly darkside chords. Pillars is more abstract, smoked out and riddled with synthetic gremlins.
His Flash React yokes back to more tribalist concerns with a panicked drum coda that palpitates itself to a strangely ecstatic bright eyed fervour, and Tuff Cookie carves back to grubbier styles with knotted syncopation and a bestial, semi-organic synth sound that barks at the perimeter.
One of the most detailed and infectious lot we’ve heard from the Timedance boss.
