Review

Anyone who checked Ital's recent release for Not Not Fun offshoot 100% Silk will need no extra incentive to indulge in this release for Lovers Rock. The deviations from the house music template shown there are further explored on Culture Clubs, not least on the elegantly dizzying shifts in rhythmic direction that permeate through the opening title track. A schizoid approach to pitch shifting the gloopy sounds creates a mystical effect which is replicated on the B Side opener "Eternally Yours". Based around a rawer sound, with tinny stunted rhythms at the fore, Ital employs similar shifting techniques on a track that gains increasingly abstract intentions as it progresses. Given the esoteric sounds that permeate through every Mathematics release, label boss Jamal Moss aka Hieroglyphic Being seems a perfect fit to invite on board for remix duties and the resultant remix of "Culture Clubs" is typically unique! We're not entirely sure what studio techniques Moss employed to get the viscous stretched out qualities that pervade throughout but it's crazy good, especially the midpoint grind to a halt.
