Boomkat Product Review:
Crazylegs’ dJJ applies a fine mid ‘90s Chi-meets-french filter touch on his debut with FatCat Records’ FCR series.
The results sound something like the bastard offspring of Arthur “Artwork” Smith’s Grain project - also issued by FatCat - and Thomas Bangaltar, skewing the filter house template with adroit style in the soca-flavoured dervish Djj Yn Y Ty, or like Shake’s most fidgety funk in Glas.
The peak steamer I Keep Trying to Convince Myself then sounds like an especially punkish Roulé, and Lil Funk spreads it on a swingeing salsa-electro hustle, with Upsqwar bringing the feeling from your toes to your nose, have you dancing like Limmy’s rave dad remembering the good old years. Yaasss.
