Boomkat Product Review:
Hands up who wants/needs a cover of Sugababes on a Braindance-type beat? There’s all that and much more joyful IDM-pop in Otto’s ludicrously charming early volley for PLZ Make it Ruins
Doing fast, mentalistic IDM, but without its more po-faced afflictions, Otto keeps it hychromatic and POP in a style clearly influenced by the drill ’n bass of AFX and Squarepusher, but tweaked in a way he can safely call his own.
A big attraction of this EP from midsummer 2020 is his hyperglyding cover of Sugababes’ ‘00s classic ‘About You Now’, the fructose shot of goodness we all need, while we’re also well into the melting gurn face acid and pungent melodies of ‘Bathroom on the Bus’, the needlepoint programming in his hyper-happy-hardcore rush ‘Cannonball Style (Child Class)’, and the lip-smacking electro MDMA tang on his electro beauty ‘Massachusetts Cowgirl’.
