VA – Boe XXX [BOEXXX]


Every tenth release for Boe Recordings represents a significant achievement for the vinyl-focused record label and the numerical milestone is celebrated with a special release. The thirtieth installment, BOE XXX is a true family affair with four recognizable Boe artists and two new members added in. Leif’s “That Ice Cream Tune” features shuffling and stuttering arpeggiated leads and metallic syncopated hats and snares. Spoken word hums and an ambient lead add that beautiful sheen to the production. Ben Boe slots in a classy deep electro cut, “Spectral Gate” comprised of weighty analog percussion and shifting synthscapes. Nick Lawson returns to Boe with yet another classy example of high-end deep house. “Wharf Aquatics” bubbles and grooves along with its effervescent dub delayed leads and it’s liquid bass movements. Late night head music. A closely linked artist to the label, Life Recorder finally gets his debut on Boe with a low slung grooving tech houser, “Butterflies”. Aimed squarely at the dance floor this no-nonsense driving cut pumps and grooves for 7 minutes with its persistent Detroit style hook line. Reedale Rise provides “Quadrex”; a Detroit-esque electro track with DBX style hypnotism thrown in for good measure. Space age themes and Drexiycan like pads play off against shuffling percussion mechanics. Finally, after many recent contributions to boe 12″s, the steel city techno-forging don John Shima lays down a stunning piece of ambient work in the vein of B12 and those classic industrial sounds calledLiberation.
