Boomkat Product Review:
NKC brings his killer drum palette back to Her Records with three carnival-ready riddims twisting the boomy styles of his Hague Basement EP hard off the bone with irresistible, latinate swerve.
Tincture builds a pensive head with militant batacuda patterns swarmed by mechanical bees and panic-station bleeps, then unleashes something like a drunken master take on c*nty ballroom with pendulous, staggered kicks and noise knotted at nagging angles.
Puncture is more direct, hitting hard from the front with cavernous percussion and industrial squeals stripped to the bare essentials in a way that makes so much other stuff sound overly fussy and boujee, before landing at the powerful samba-style charge of Dual Power, whose humid breakdown and reprise offers the only sort of melodic respite in the EP, which is no bad thing.
