Boomkat Product Review:
Last heard via that other great avenue for new electronica, Audiobulb, Brighton's Calika returns on Highpoint Lowlife with five classy productions: 'Slack Jaw' chops craftily through splashy breakbeats and dark, chopped chord sequences - inevitably raising some of those old Four Tet comparisons, but rather than relying on sample dissection the tracks here are defined by intricate editing and tricky programming. 'Crome Yellow' is especially fluent and incisive, cutting up those drums in fine style while strange detuned melodies warp and bend around them. The EP closes strongly too, with the beautifully wrung out strings and dub-tinged guitar phrasings of 'To Hold You'. Recommended.
