Boomkat Product Review:
Inimitable deep Detroit magick from KDJ on a cracking 2x12” of Linn drum rhythms and freaky psyche-funk
Dedicated to the dance - whether that’s a heaving, red-lit club or bedroom hustle - ‘Sinner’ plays loose with classic 313 styles in typically rolling but unpredictable arrangements built to toy with moving bodies and light up late night minds.
Plate 1 throws down two massive, uptempo zingers. ‘I’ll Provide’ fits low-riding, scuzzy guitar to tweaky kicks in a style recalling Funkadelic or The Dirtbombs, with the snappy Linn Drum crack and deft disco bass of ‘I Think Of Saturday’ playing up to his hushed but urgent vocals on the backside’s instant classic.
In contrast Plate 2 delivers a more soulful punch in the simmering live drums, floating organ and strutting bass of ‘If I Gave U My Love’, which winds in on itself to a deeper burning bass hustle before the final side slips into bedroom mode with the slow acid bass and sublime, coastal breeze strings of ‘Deeper Shadows’, and the aching downstroke of ’Sinnerman.’
You know what to do.
