Boomkat Product Review:
NNF's latest sees Los Angeles' most respected label mistress flick through her rolodex for a new hookup to cruise the strip with. This time it's Daniel Martin-McCormick aka Mi Ami aka Ital, aka one of our favourite producers in the world right now. 'LA Vampires Goes Ital' is a slow motion hi-five of fugged-up strut beats put together from mushed tape loops, stray synthlines and waterstained vocals fed through a matrix of 2nd hand effects. The results are primed for the most dazed days of summer, bobbing from the sun-melted drone pop of 'Streetwise', to the sounds of an inner city festival heard through low-lying smog from ten blocks away on 'Tons Of Love', hearing the baked Soul II Soul vibes of 'A Woman Is A Woman' booming from a nearby car, and checking the head-wreck of 'The Chic Shall Inherit The Earth'. Like they say, it's "…too gritty and blasted for dancing but too bangin' to sit still, this is a real mutant zone…". A must have for those heads who love noise in the middle of summer.
