Hoavi - Flay

  • Slippery, footwork-informed jungle.

  • Hoavi's upcoming Peak Oil album is a deft expression of rhythm, mixing dub techno atmospherics and aesthetics with a perky, junglist flair and the floating basslines of footwork. "Flay" is a near-perfect opener, establishing Hoavi's unique grasp of these three styles: the drums do loop-de-loops like a corkscrew rollercoaster, the bassline feels twisty and unpredictable and it has some of the prettiest, most yearning synth work this side of an Alaska record.
