Boomkat Product Review:
Afriqua nests a deep, wider follow-up to his R&S début, the ‘Aleph’ EP, with a slow burning, dubbed and jazzy batch of ambient house plays
Twisting and grubbing somewhere between the breezy psychedelia of his near-namesake, Afrikan Sciences and the slinky gilding of classic Villalobos, Afriqua’s Vice/Principle EP starts up with the magcik meld of subaquatic swirl and crackling embers in Vign, which tilts into something like a Thomas Kehlmann and The Orb workout with the 10 minute Melamed, and the woozy but nimbly elastic skank of Noumenon on the first plate.
The 2nd disc brings the Villalobos allegory into sharper focus with the micro-edited double bass and colourfully plumed yet wing-clipped groove of Cerch sounding like seminal late ‘00s Rico V, before the elliptical bassline and scudding FX of Sway gently fold listeners into their balmy, psychoactive momentum.
