Boomkat Product Review:
Includes a sublime Actress remix!
The slightly unusual link-up between Ratking producer, Sporting Life, and Belgium’s R&S continues to bloom with three subtly warped takes on R&B, house and electronica backed by an instant classic Actress remix.
In solo mode, NYC’s Eric Adiele a.k.a. Sporting Life charms with a brilliant (uncredited) soul vocal on the gauzy shuffle of Court Vision before testing his nimblest 3-step patterns in the heat hazy, Timba-esque Skip To My Lou and a shoegazing Chicago house variation in I Love This Game.
Let’s not beat around the bush though; the Actress remix stands miles out from the rest, resetting the vocal of Court Vision in a waking dream simulacra of R&B and smoky chamber synth music that feels like the soundtrack to a Lynchian stage play.
