Boomkat Product Review:
LR Groove & Razzler Man’s Tribal Brothers link DJ Polo on a class set of UKF and amapiano flexes with Peverelist’s Livity Sound
Chasing up a clutch of snare heavy tramplers on their Renk Groove Recordings, the four tracks are prime examples of this sound’s timely resurgence and diversified, updated bonds with current AfroHouse and South African styles, as also heard on Supa D’s Housupa label and tipped by dons like DVA and Slackk.
’12HRS’ comes with the sweetboy UKF skank on melodically tuned, swanging percussion and hiccuping vocal tics, which they switch up to harder effect on the bouncing toms and gruff exhortations of ’Bullet Rice.’ The other two are more definitively skooled in amapiano styles, cold killing with the percolated snares, lurking subs and belly-tightening syncopation of ‘Three Tribes’, and the inching budge of ‘The Problem’ zipped up with its zinging trills and sparing square bass nudges.
We cannot effing wait to get out dancing to this gear.
