Boomkat Product Review:
Sparkling dub techno, proggy trance, and swirling beatdown from the new NYC cat on Belgium’s Suzi
Chasing up his ’21 doozy on Anthony Naples & Jenny Slattery’s Incienso, Downstairs J plays to his fine spectrum of styles on ‘Too’. For the peak hours there’s a flighty, rolling and swinging dub techno workout ‘Mana 4000’ riddled with filigree detailed synth mycelia and light touch pads, plus the glyding prog-trance lift of ’Orion’ with its sublime string tension and scudding choral motifs.
On the other side of the wave, the lathered dolphin calls and whirring trills of ’Symbiosis’ slink to the backroom, and the ambient south-bathing gouch-out of ’Soothsayer’.
