Boomkat Product Review:
Following an appearance on last week’s excellent ‘Weightless’ comp for Mumdance and Logos’ Different Circles label, recent Tri Angle signee Rabit returns with another stone-cold killer, his first release for the Soundman Chronicles label. His productions have managed to stand out in a new generation of producers who are re-imagining the old template of grime and rehashing it into a style which is fresh without sounding nostalgic. This new EP was an opportunity for Rabit to explore different sonic textures which still worked within the label’s spacious aesthetic, including 4 new productions which explore different tempos as well as a variety of different spaces. “Send” kicks things off with sparse and heavy atmospherics, the vocals providing a sense of tension, while “Atacama Skeleton” is the longest and most unpredictable of tunes on the EP. “Sun God” is more of a melodic roller, while “Yellow Haze”, a much sought-after Rabit dubplate, deploys distorted basslines and hypnotic horns.
