Boomkat Product Review:
Texan grime producer Rabit has been lending a hand to some of the trippiest, far-out grime instrumentals of late. For Diskotopia, his 'Sun Showers' EP renders four deftly quicksilver constructions tweaking the templates of original and nu-skool grime from a curious outsider perspective. 'Sun Showers' deals in the kind of glassy, holo-graphic eski geomtries also explored by Fatima Al Qadiri, Visionist or Total Freedom, and Levels' reduces the whipsmart styles of Splurt's Oil Gang ace, 'The Return' with sinuous, minimalist logic. '40 Below' is all aerated percussive diffusions and cyber-chamber reverbs laced with computer game-style foley FX, and 'Black Bag' renders beautifully moody, orientalist synth timbre and Burial-esque vocal treatments. They may not be big club bangers, but Rabit's style should be checked by anyone with an interest in grime and new electronic music's stranger, cyber-spaced out limits. Recommended!
