Boomkat Product Review:
New five-track EP from the artist formerly known as 8Bitch. The title track and opener is prime steppers' techno, accented with blissed-out vocal blurts, sparkling synth arpeggios and underscored with a nicely oily bassline: think 2562 with a feminine touch. ‘Night Bird’ ups the level of vocal manipulation, compressing breathy syllables into airtight computer funk, all pushed along by an unrelenting snare syncopation, whooshing FX and moody, morning-after keys. 'Bit Pony' teams a spry half-step beat with nuff squelches and gurgles, coming over like Anthony Manning if he'd hit his stride in Croydon circa 2004, and 'You Are My Height' aspires to the art-trance pomp of an Apparat or Pantha Du Prince, but with a refreshing amount of dirt under its fingernails. Well-practised party-smasher Unknown To The Unknown (Hot City) impresses with a remix of 'Night Bird', pitching down the vocals into sub-low malevolence, and re-ordering the groove into a B-more and 'ardkore-infected house splacker - well good!
