Falty DL – Phreqaflex [ZIQ277]

https://i0.wp.com/static.boomkat.com/images/353873/333.jpg

There’s a feeling of spacious freedom and sensuality written all over these, from the kinky hardcore tropes of the title track and its quicksilver scuff ‘n skip, right through the dubbed shuffle and empty warehouse reverbs of ‘Because You’ on the A-side. ‘My Friends Will Always Say…’ on the flip consolidates the best of both his worlds, designed with an advanced sense of jazzy electronic arrangement, yet keeping everything sparse and still poppy enough to really capture the crowd’s affections.

Pioneer of bass music in France for almost 10 years now, his productions have always ignored borders and have been recognized for their melodic quality and musicality. Notably supported by Mala Digital Mystikz on his Dubstep productions, this true underground artist is constantly innovating in the studio. Blending House and Garage flavours to massive basslines and Dub skanks, delays and echoes, Boxin and Boston are unique tracks, and as usual with Likhan’, impossible to label.

Lil Silva – Night Skanker EP [NS004]

Cover art - Lil Silva: Night Skanker EP

The four melodic, synth-laden tracks are typically raw and grimey but also run deeper with a newfound luminescence. Constructed from a robotic new sound palette,Lil  Silva’s tuff flange-funk drum programming and twisted carnival rhythms are permeated by razor-sharp neon synths, jacking cowbells, massive slabs of sub bass and even Silva’s own sampled vocals. These are industrial-size riddims for worldwide dancefloor demolition!
