Boomkat Product Review:
Home counties bassbin pressure from newcomer Minder, distilling and adapting the hardcore ‘nuum in his own image for Sneaker Social Club’s first tape release
Making full use of the format (if not pushing it’s limits at 102 minutes long, when the tape starts to stretch?!) Minder throws down a 19 track volley of vibes emulating the rush of pirate radio and ragging around country roads in a hotboxed Corsa aged 17. The results run it shabby chic, knowingly compressed to sound like a fourth-hand copy of a mate’s older brother’s Top Buzz tape and strewn with ragga chat and classic samples to taste. We’re not sure how this fidelity will come across in a club, but then again everyone just plays YouTube rips anyway so fuck it, take your chances, they’ll probably sound around the same quality.
