Boomkat Product Review:
Featuring exclusive tracks and collabs feat Jlin & Zora Jones, DJ Rashad, DJ Spinn, Murlo, L-Vis 1990, v1984, Swing Ting, Famous ENo, Sinin Hawke and many more...
Sinjin Hawke & Zora Jones weigh in a wide and heavy 20-track volley of collaborations with everyone from Jlin to Swing Ting and v1984 on Visceral Minds 2; a hypercoloured showcase of the audio components to their ongoing A/V explorations - run go to their Fractal Fantasy site to see them in context!
Coming quick on the heels of Sinjin Hawke’s solo expo, First Opus, this suite exemplifies the bountiful bonds both he and Zora have developed with a worldwide network of artists who share a mutual vision of optimistic and forward-leaning dancefloor pressure in the contemporary field.
Adept at every style they turn their four hands to, from Zora’s warped footwork bender Dark Matter with Jlin to Sinjin’s footwork hypersoul turn with DJ Spinn & DJ Rashad which bookend the set, thru to the knee-bending bashment of Killa Season with Swing ting and Trigga, or the weightless turbulence of Zora’s Don’t head-spinner with Martyn Bootyspan, they’ve clearly got the sport of chops that should make many other producers very jealous.
That Swing Ting joint is a really big highlight, but we’re also most partial to the highly strung orchestrations of All Black featuring Sinjin with Rihcelle and Xzavier Stone, which starts out sounding like Maxwell Sterling then switches up the hardest drums we’ve heard in a minute, whilst one of the strongest moments comes from their own steam in the Zora & Sinjin zinger, No Shame.
No mistake, this set is a shiny peak of club music in 2017.
