Iglooghost: Little Grids 12″ EP (Brainfeeder, 2016)May 11, 2016 at 10:49 pm | Posted in Reviews | Leave a comment
Really bizarre, hyperactive, colorful fast-n-choppy electronic music from a UK producer who put out another EP on Brainfeeder last year called Chinese Nu Yr that similarly confused and delighted me. It seems like he has some sort of hip-hop background, but this is just far more fast and glitchy than you’d expect from the beat scene. Very hyperkinetic songs which seem to pack tons of ideas into three minutes, sounding like something from any number of Japanese breakcore netlabels but less abrasive and with more of a pop sheen/focus. “Gold Tea” even has lush, choir-like R&B vocals. I think this is what I always hoped PC Music was going to sound like. Super cutesy and meta and impossible to exist without the internet, but without the ditzy girl-next-door vocals or bad taste or creepiness. This guy could end up making brains burst into cotton candy and sprinkles for a long time.
