Boomkat Product Review:
As of summer ’16, Ruby Fifths reps the freshest instance of pristine, weightless pressure from Barcelona’s Zora Jones, in tandem with footwork wunderkind Heavee and remixed by London bass freak DVA.
It’s a proper future-shocker on all counts. The original Ruby Fifths cleanly swerves footwork’s more masculine, hammering elements in favour of sweeping curves and sparkling dynamics without discounting the important ruggedness, finding an aching rhythmic resolution between the cracks and joins, gilded with liquid metal streaks and refractive choral harmonies. This is surely one of the most fwd things we’ve heard this year so far.
Likewise, Hyperdub’s DVA is on stellar form with the rolling, quasi-speed Hi Emotions remix twisting a body inside-out, upside-down with gyroscopic elegance, arguably the best thing he’s ever made.
Yeah, we’re bang into this. Strong recommendation.
