It's been a long time between drinks for Kamal Joory, whose last album under his Geiom alias dropped way back in 2007. It's no surprise, then, that Black Screen sees him shift his attention from experimental dubstep and post-dubstep fusions, to a wide-ranging electronic sound that takes him in a multitude of directions. Musically, it's album born out of a love of invention. At times, there's so much going on that it's hard to keep up. That's not a criticism, though; if anything, it makes for much more enjoyable listening. There are skittish IDM rhythms, acid-flecked garage-dubstep fusions, calming ambient interludes, juke-influenced beat science, jazz-step electronica mash-ups and loads more besides. Oh, and electro-calypso. Recommended.
If you're after some sizzling dancefloor bombs with a heavy bias on the bass then you've got two killer options right here. "2-4-6" is a super-synthetic slice of UKF, full of bleepy bass notes, dubby vox and stuttering keyboards. On the digital flipside, Desto, clocks in with a moody and slower tropical grinder that's full of tensions and midnight madness.
