Stabfinger drops new EP on Boomerang Records
Boomerang Records is crafting a reputation which sees them put diversity first, ensuring their growing catalogue has a taste to fit every palette. This is something which they continue into their next release, being provided by the Paris based, genre-twisting Stabfinger. He draws together an eclectic mix of acid, breakbeat, jungle, funk, jazz and glitch, and the results present his exquisite musicality as an artist. It also demonstrates Boomerang’s commitment to versatility, as well as only bringing through the most talented artists to have their take on the imprint’s sound.
Stabfinger’s sonic explorations are a welcome return for Boomerang, whilst despite being in its infancy, has really begun to make its mark across the wider drum & bass scene. ‘Doppia Personalità’ is the prime example of the top-quality music which Boomerang’s roster have brought to their discography and on first listen, it’s easy to become immersed in its musical senses. The title track opens the listener up to a glitch-filled, highly atmospheric landscape, the type that you can get effortlessly lost in. Steppy note patterns and slowly edged-in drums drag you out into the deep, before the track’s melody comes into play. As the drums are added, the record begins to really show it’s strength, and it’s then taken to new heights. ‘Doppia Personalità’ is a very powerful cut of IDM.
The flip-side is our premiere for today, the funky whirlwind, that is ‘Follow The Rhythm’. Again, Stabfinger presents a mix of genres, blending acid, jazz, funk, glitch and drum & bass all in one high energy dance track. Snipped up samples add to the cut’s urgency, although this time there’s less of a melancholy mood, and instead, Stabfinger presents the more dance-floor orientated side to his sound. Each track provides a different insight into Stabfinger as a producer. It also highlights the complexity of Boomerang as a label, always ensuring the ingenuity of every release they drop.
