Kouhei Matsunaga returns to Diagonal with ‘Doom Steppy Reverb’ following up his ‘Hallucinogenic Doom Steppy Verbs’ 12” for the label, via a quick pit-stop on L.I.E.S. with the ‘Sparrow's Gardens’ EP. I’ve been having my own personal one-man private party to the digital promo of this since I scored it. Mincing about my kitchen like a lunatic. I just hope God doesn’t upload that shit to YouTube or I’m finished.
This disc is loaded with DJ ammo… A fair amount of the sound palette on here reminds me of early Surgeon i.e the Communications album and first three EP’s -- all squirming, wriggling fizzing/ sizzling synths and that. Although the beats are fully 2016 stepping techno/ breakbeat/ 2-step. On a few tracks the beats sort of slip and overlap sounding like my dodgy mixing on ye olde Technics. A cracking bunch of party tracks with dubby chords, a smattering of acid, stripped back rolling techno, some proper bangers and grubby sluggish stompers.
I’m so having one - you should too if you know what’s good for you. 500 copies of the wax.
