Boomkat Product Review:
Willow doubles her solo output with a keenly anticipated Workshop 30 cat# that was worth the wait.
Leading on from Willow’s cult debut 12” of 2016 - and scarce cuts in between such as ‘Feel Me’ - she commits four subtle shades of her style to ‘Workshop 30’, swinging out for the late night/all-day crew between hypnotic minimal strollers and effervescent broken beats certain to slake a thirst for her deft, signature grooves.
‘Squirrel City’ trades in an effortlessly driving, dreamy strain of deep minimalism recalling early Cassy gems, whereas ‘Phoebe’ slows the tempo to a more dubbed out, MDMAde-up glow. ‘Sexuall’ makes more sensual use of her vocals, lathered and looped in a jazzier deep house style with slinky congas and warm-buttered chords landing somewhere between Gemini and Move D, while ‘Strawberry Moon’ comes with craftily coiled breaks and feathered phonemes primed to refresh the dance with a 2nd wind at the right time.
