Boomkat Product Review:
Top shelf sci-fi thriller machine functions on Funkineven’s Apron Records, for fans of Dâm Funk, Shamos, Tony Price, dBridge
Night-vision goggles turned on, Quaid comes slick as fuck with the perfectly pulpy steez of ‘The Algorithm Don’t Like My Freek’, a narrative-based instrumental suite in the vein of his four albums to date, including the pair of ‘Dreem Static’ sessions for Apron in 2020/21.
Blessed with purring groove control and padded with lustrous synths, it feels like the lost score to a Michael Mann flick, scanning glittering city horizons in the panoramic open ’End Game’ and shuttling between kerb-crawling funk on ‘HyperReal’ to the romantic keytar riffs and bass plucks of ‘Secret Colors’, tempered by storytelling pieces such as the crimson-hued glyde of ‘Quantum Prophets’ and proper ‘80s thriller leads of ‘Future Attractions’, with debonaire turns of 808 electromance in ‘The Lovers’ , while perpetrating proper purple funk in ‘Untitled Freek’.
