Boomkat Product Review:
Al Wooton (fka Deadboy) follows a slew of 12"s and an LP (July's "Witness") on his own TRULE imprint with this absolute belter for Livity Sound, showing there's still gas in the post-dubstep tank yet.
At times "Snake Dance" sounds like it could have slipped out on Apple Pips back in the day, and that's high praise indeed. Wooton has re-tooled 2-step to fit his particular vision, taking the skeletal perfection of El-B and adding snappy, atmospheric sound design and squelches u might expect to hear on a T++ record.
Title track 'Snake Dance' is the pick of the pack, with Burial-esque crackle and distant strings giving extra weight to a minimal bass-n-drums workout that has moody Chain Reaction fog escaping from every wobble.
