Boomkat Product Review:
Bony rave rattlers from an on-fire Pessimist going in with Holsten, backed up with a concentrated halftime remix by Clarity
Like his killer recent outing for Ilian Tape, Pessimist is properly injecting some UK rudeness and darkside discipline into this new one with Holsten, who brings the sort of dank late ‘90s/early ‘00s warehouse tekkers found on his pair of plates for UVB-76 Music’s Droogs series.
The duo’s first offspring, ‘The Riot Tune’ comes in two gnashing, heavyweight types; the first locking off thistly breaks and droning sirens with pressurised bursts of amens in lip-smacking style, while the 2nd emphasises a dread bashment flex hingeing around hollow, wall-beating bass drum slap in a classic sort of UK turbo dancehall style that is effectively D&B. On remix detail, Clarity fine tunes ‘The Riot Tune’ with clinical finesse, tightening up with some slicker Neuro torque and whipsmart glyding bass to finely calibrate your rolige and make you dance at least 23% better. No lie.
