Boomkat Product Review:
Prolific Oakland DJ and producer Bored Lord debuts on Eris Drew and Octa Octa's T4T LUV NRG label with four grubby backroom construxions that remind of '90s 'ardkore without seeking to emulate it. Next gen shit that crumbles fuzzy rave and pop memories into surprising new forms.
If you've managed to miss Bored Lord until now, here's yer chance to remedy that. Her genre-challenging edits and productions have kept plenty of us enthralled over the last few years, and now she's set to break out even further with this brittle set of ready-made party starters. Where else would you hope to find chopped Gwen Stefani vocals crudely spread over timestretched breaks and orchestra hits like Nutella on a slice of toast? 'Cuz that's what we've got with half-time opener 'Everyday Together'.
'GNC NRG' bolts acid squiggles on disco hits arranging everything around a beat that's too tweaky to slip into straight 4/4. We hit a house groove on 'Women's Wisdom', but with a dissociated euphoria from looped, reverberating vocals and a kick/snare bounce that sounds as if it'll break apart at any moment. It's music that's birthed from the mind of an artist who's unafraid to play fast and loose with the formula - an experienced DJ, she produces as if she's crafting blends, and that sets her productions into a realm all of their own. Massive recommendation!
