Boomkat Product Review:
John T. Gast, Plaid, Lowfish, and Thee Church ov Acid House rework highlights of recent 12”s dished up by the good boys and girls at Hamburg’s Golden Püdel
Adorned with art nodding to the KLF by the ever trustworthy Alex Solman, the EP ropes in some of the club’s favourite figures for a typically diverse session that speaks to the spectrum of their tastes.
Taking on Rosaceae’s ‘Zoran Cudi’, aerobic mystic John T. Gast returns a driving sort of travellers’ free party techno pounder with hypnotic, lush results. Tasked with imagining a The Black Dog rework of Lalo Schifrin’s The Bullitt’, TBD OG’s Plaid turn Carsetn ‘Erobique’ Meyer’s ’Tatortreiniger’ into a elegant ’60 styled hustle puckered with signature, crystalline melodies.
Lowfish of influential Canadian synth label Suction renders quadratschulz’s ‘gestalt’ as a breezy waltz winking at classic Düsseldorf electronics, and the Church ov Acid House - aka Jörn Elling Wuttke (Acid Jesus) & Oliver Bradford (artist behind DJ Sammy’s ‘Heaven’ 12”!) - inject Cosmic Cars’ ‘Types’ with a proper early ‘90s UK rave energy.
