Boomkat Product Review:
Messrs Coupe and Watson reconvene with B Zero’s RSI for another collection of restless South London House ‘ems FYI Chris-style.
Russian Woodpecker is rife with tension and unease, FYI Chris implementing odd spoken word samples amidst skittering drum paths and queasy siren-like hooks in a manner that recalls STL. Repeater peels off into lopsided jazzy house territory, all buffed up kicks, tickling toms and urgent string samples topped by irregular calls of “where the bass drum at?”
How to Ruin the World pairs scuffed low end a la Theo with some blushed harmonics reminiscent of Nathan Fake in his pomp, whilst Low Star rolls out cheeky sampled vox over a rusted house groove that never sits still.
