Boomkat Product Review:
Thrilling new styles from J.Albert, decimating 2-step and breakbeats into psychedelic shrapnel and ‘floor-spinning future rufige for Bristol’s Hypercolour. RIYL Greg Beato, Falty DL, Dego
Following from one of our 12”s of 2018, ‘Envy Turned Curiosity’, the Queens, NYC-based producer foots the finest line of controlled madness on all four tracks.
‘Wake Me Up’ hacks out a hugely dynamic display of ricocheting woodblocks and haywire synth vamps countered with diazepam-style vocals, and ‘World War me’ tumbles fractured breaks in a mad electro-dub sphere before ‘Parabola’ eggs that aesthetic into a brittler sort of dub technoid breakage, and ‘Joy Of rebirth’ eases off with a lusher balance of jungle tension and dreamy string pads.
