Boomkat Product Review:
**Swingeing, Afro-inspired rhythms and moody, near neo-classical composition from the drummer for Owiny Sigoma Band and Melt Yourself Down. Check for the crafty, Andy Stott-like remix from Pete Wareham** "Swiftly following on from his acclaimed and self-titled debut album, Tom Skinner's Hello Skinny project ratchets back into view with the genre-blurring EP/mini-album Revolutions. Revolutions Part 1 is what can only be described as Hello Skinny's "banger" (all things being relative; Hello Skinny is a project named after a Residents tune, after all). Slowly evolving over its delicately controlled 8-minutes, Revolutions Part 1 is a dubby techno number that waxes and wanes - slow build, peaks'n'troughs musical euphoria personified. Revolutions Part 2 on the other hand relieves you from your eased-in comfort zone with an expertly executed free-jazz saxophone/drum conversation. The remixes snap you back to sunset and back to the huge horizons so awed at during Revolutions Part 1 with Zero 7's minimal techno take on Crush from last year's self-titled Hello Skinny LP. Two further remixes, a driving yet beautiful folktronica take on Knot Blue by fellow Slowfoot artist (and member of Hello Skinny's live band) Crewdson aka Hugh Jones and then capped off by Skinner's Melt Yourself Down colleague Pete Wareham and his midnight reverb reworking of Bump."
