Boomkat Product Review:
Proper darkroom house sleaze from the guys behind BAT and Ovis Aurum, aka Boa, on a 2015 platter that bypassed most radars upon release
Issued as one of the earliest numbers on Seagrave, whose catalogue now spans aces by rkss, Jay Glass Dubs, Rennick Bell and many more, the sole BOA 12” feels timelessly squared for humid, red-lit club rooms at 5AM.
The A-side is just dripping with mucky suss, coming on with the dank and sensuous EBM house canter of ‘Bestial Arch’ beside the swaggering sleepwalker styles of ‘Roman Gold’ recalling vintage strains of Hypnobeat, proto-Humanoid and Beau Wanzer. Meanwhile the B-side brings the ‘floor to its knees for a sludgy crawl thru the buggered chug of ‘The Aqueduct’ and the knackered crease of ‘Lit Messenger’.
