Boomkat Product Review:
Humid, post-D&B ecosystems from Fis, backed with killer Kassem Mosse and Oren Ambarchi remixes. The first release on Loopy, a new label administered by Sam Strang, 'Speech Spirits' follows on from the 'Iterations' 12" with two cuts of unquantised riddmic roil, staggering from the bomber-streaked drunken-master styles of the title track to the plangent percussions and duppied atmospheres of 'Knecht' - not a million miles from his early ace, 'Love, Drama, Stress', only without the vocal. Remixing, Kassem Mosse returns to the spiky (machine?) drum palette of his killer 'Hi Res' cut for Nonplus+ for a skittish slowfast thing rife with zipping synthlines and blue pads, and Oren Ambarchi turns out a remarkable 13 minute revision twysting chunks of the original into an abstract D&B-cum-krautrock-dub scape. Great start by the Loopy label = a strong recommendation.
