Boomkat Product Review:
Pessimist back on the bad foot for Blackest Ever Black after sending that Balaclava missile on their A14 label in 2016. Hoods-up, eyes-down rolige in both heavyweight parts signalling a mighty debut album just around the corner.
Through The Fog tees off with masterfully clipped and shivering steppers’ drums anchored in ‘floor-engulfing Reese subs on the A-side, flexing out in the shadows of classic Doc Scott and Digital under a pall of dank, blue cloaking atmospheres.
On the other hand, his B-side Peter Hitchens helms to a more technoid schematic of drop-forge bass and rictus chatter percussions infiltrated by mind-bending acid lines and Virus-style pads, serving perhaps one of the strongest reimaginings of ‘90s D&B-into-130bpm techno frameworks in circulation right now.
