Boomkat Product Review:
Techno’s answer to Basquiat scrawls freehand bangers and a smudged 16 minute scape on his first mission since those badass releases for DDS a few years ago
Yielding his first new material for a bit, the title of ’Str8 Crooked’ perfectly sums up Madteo’s loose-limbed irregularities squashed within. Picking up where he left off with the skewed techno boogies of the ‘Dropped Out Sunshine’, 'teo reaches deep in the top pocket for the wickedly scrappy log drums and rug-shredding syncopations of the title track before evening the keel with the rough hewn heft of his slompy jakbeat drums and unexpected pass-outs in ‘Build Back better Sweatshops.’
However, his magick best comes to the fore on ‘Episcopi Vagantes’ as he sprawls out over its 16 minute canvas with aerosolised pads, scribbly electronic voices and gasping dub chords that sound best if you take a step back, and squint a little, to properly take in its gently delirious form.
Tip, innit just!
