Bournemouth based Abstract Culture continue to add facets to their blooming imprint as it gradually gathers steam behind releases from Zoo Look and Ampers&. With support across these two releases from Maya Jane Coles, Huxley, Eats Everything, Jimpster, Dusky and Detroit Swindle, the next release comes courtesy of Brazil based Sara Garcia a.k.a Whim-ee.
Following up releases on labels such as Night Drive Music, Chilli Mint Music, Nite Grooves and TaoDan Records, Whim-ee carries influences primarily from Chicago and Detroit into her forward-reaching productions that are consistently suffused with a tough and gritty sense of soul.
'Streets Of Recife' is a course combination of concrete kicks, husky synths and mangled vocal snippets that are backed up with a remix from the lauded Frenchman - Anaxander.
The title track kicks things off with darting strobes and a swirling synth pattern sat above a rattling underbelly before Anaxander, who follows up releases on Dame-Music, Quintessentials and Local Talk offers up a warming take on the original rich with glowing piano lines and softly saturated bass tones.
'Sub' then drives it's whetted and cold percussion over a softly rotating drone before 'Before Considering' rolls out an elephantine groove behind forceful, plodding synths and a thickened kick and clap combo that bring another Abstract Culture coup to a close.
