Boomkat Product Review:
AceMo's kinetic 2015 full-length still sounds unfathomably fresh, linking footwork intensity with breakcore, garage, deep house and knackered trance.
Fans of AceMo's popular recent run of material might have missed "Redshift", a bumper set that originally appeared on NYC's Bootleg Tapes imprint back in 2015. Here, AceMo experiments with club forms, using the rhythmic backbone of Chicago footwork to build out tracks that touch on a spectrum of dance subgenres, from jungle to smoove electro funk.
'This Hype' adds the tweaky intensity of breakcore to the footwork model, machinegunning expertly-chopped breaks with twisted vocal samples and syncopated kicks; 'Water Money' turns the tempo down, bringing in vintage electro bass and dusty rap percussion; 'Gi Gi Bla Bla Bla' pushes the album into almost Baile funk territory, twisting an undulating club shake with vocal cuts and metallic clanks.
