Boomkat Product Review:
The Future Sound of Athens comes on strong from Penelope’s Fiancé via the brilliant Hypermedium - heavily tipped to fans of Nkisi, Xyn Cabal, Xiao Quan, Tsuzing
‘The Cutting Edge Of A Knife’ chefs up six slices of rawly up-to-the-moment club meat in that mutant Hellenistic way particular to Athens’ compass-spin nexus of cultures and keen underground hive mind. Porous to everything from Congolese doomcore, to searing Mahraganat heat, UK ‘nuum dynamics and prevailing hardcore sounds from South America to China, Penelope’s Fiancé makes sense of it all in a raggo club context that makes us frankly fucking gasp to get back in a dark loud warehouse.
The FSOL-esque siren calls of ‘Lethe’ set off some bone-rattling 160bpm madness like Nkisi doing jungle tekno in ‘Futile Endeavours’, followed thru in the doomcore ballstics of ‘I Wasn’t Always There’, whereas ‘Anxiety’ tucks it away on a slower, pendulous swivel like Xiao Quan-meets-Slimzee doing his 33-not-45 D&B thing, and the title tune bangs like Low Jack soundtracking a street rave in Cairo.
