Boomkat Product Review:
French rap and club music from winnterzuko, produced by a coterie of current Parisian operators.
Chasing up their entry on the ace ‘Promesses Vol. 2’ comp, winnterzuko steps forth on their solo debut, proper, switching between myriad styles to showcase their expressive diversity. Nyluu, Yunodji & abel31 supply a beatless backing of swirling strings for opener ‘Enfer et Pardis’, but it soon ramps to hyperpop donk with a Parisian melodram on ’115’, produced by abel31 & Tony Seng, and an emo-trance variant in ‘grv triste’ with sorely distorted vox.
There’s a stronger slug of squashed sleaze in ‘Help’ ft. Real and produced by koboi, with Brodinski & Modulaw firming up one of the EP’s highlight in the grimy ‘IBM 5100’, while Toxic produces the other, a rolling sort of jungle chassis where winnterzuko sounds best rolling over the top.
