Boomkat Product Review:
Big release from Kingdom's new American wing of Night Slugs, the Fade To Mind imprint. Nguzunguzu make the first incision with three lean and agile, synth-drippin' bangers, backed by nexx-level Kingdom and Total Freedom remixes. Hailing from LA, Nguzunguzu have built a very solid reputation over the last 12 months or so with remixes for Lazer Sword and Rainbow Arabia, plus nuff spins from players like Bok Bok and Kingdom. Their style here is efficient and shark-eyed, dippin' between the deceptively light and skippy 'Timesup' to the whirlpool synthlines and hydraulic sub pressure of 'Water Bass Power' and the abstract mystery of 'Wake Sleep'. Remixing, Kingdom adds a signature lick of R&B gloss and sunken subs, whilst the awesome Total Freedom version almost reminds of Raime's approach to ultra-sparse rhythm architecture. Really feeling this.
