Boomkat Product Review:
Pure Parisian bassbin pressure from Simo Cell, shotting his first EP on his own label, TEMƎT
Scaling from mutant dancehall and paso doble dembow to sprung ghettotech and jiggling Jersey moves, Simo plays to all corners of his omnivorous, upfront club style on ‘Yes DJ.’ The five tracks form TEMƎT’s 3rd solo artist EP after turns by E-Unity and Elise Massoni plus a coupla killer mixtapes by Low Jack, Peverelist and Skee Mask with tight raids across the borders of club music.
On a dancehall flex, ’Short Leg’ shakks out flinty drums on a dangerously swole bassline, and the dank ‘Farts’ picks up on a sort of Loefah-Like halfstep, with ‘Yes.DJ’ toggling the pressure between footwork and dembow, galvanised with signature metallic synths. ‘Whispers’ picks up the pace to bouncing B-More/Jersey styles riven with darkside buzzsaw drones, and ‘not all it’s cracked up to be’ brings the ‘floor back to a screwed simmer with scowling, squashed bass and a fine turn to moody electronics recalling Push Button Objects. Tight + deadly 🔥
