Boomkat Product Review:
Wot do u call it? "Weightless, m8". The UK's most vapourous dancefloor mutation becomes a hyperstitious thing thanks to Logos & Mumdance's Different Circles label with this killer 7-track 12" starring themselves beside Boxed regulars, Inkke, Murlo, Dark0, Rabit and Strict Face. Taken quite literally, 'Weightless' is a sublimation of instrumental grime's classic tropes, diffusing the coiled, slippery templates of early Danny Weed and Wiley riddims into neon clouds of digital piff smoke; floating beyond conventional club/home listening schisms by transmuting grime's perceived aggression and momentum to a sort of feminine pressure and pensile hyper-stasis enabled by current production techniques. If that sounds a bit dry on screen, the results are actually hugely sensual, revelling in pointillist electronics and spatial dynamics from Mumdance, Logos and Rabit's hyper-prismic collaboration, 'Inside The Catacomb' thru the aching synthetic emotion of Dark0's 'Sweet Boy Tears' and the oily tessellations of Murlo's 'Geist' in a way that lucidly resonates with the ultra-modern aesthetics of Lars T C F Holdhus, Lorenzo Senni and Mark Fell. A must.
