Following on from the success of Artifacts ʻThe Way It Do/We Trappedʼ, the
somethinksounds cartel rolls on picking up even more steam this time calling on the
untapped talents of Lokiboi who serve up the insatiable ʻLate Reaction EPʼ which features
a collaboration with Love Fever darling Citizen. Having appeared previously on Kolour
Recordings as Klic (aka Medlar) & Lokiboi, this is his first solo appearance and his first
opportunity to demonstrate his unbelievable studio skills.
Up first ʻLate Reactionʼ rattles into our consciousness; constantly shifting this one never
lets up for moment and expert drum programming techniques ensure it has total control
over the listeners emotions throughout.
Intensity levels drop for the intro of ʻHelp Yourselfʼ as slower kick drums pulsate and
shuffling percussion rolls along as though it is being heard from the room next door.
Atmospheric pads path the way for incredible smooth garage beats to roll along with
snapping snares and chopped vocals giving the track direction.
ʻLove Saves The Dayʼ invites man of the moment Citizen to get in on the action instantly
bringing his brand of reverbed, garage-house soundscapes which is much complemented
by the percussive arrangements of Lokiboi. Excellent vocals and soaring pads take the
whole thing to a match made in dancefloor paradise.
Rounding off this superb release we have ʻKeep On Loving Me Dryʼ which builds and
builds to a dramatic climax before descending into possibly the biggest breakdown on the
All Killers, No Fillers.
