Album Review
Reviewed 2020-01-17
Left-field electronic reimaginations of traditional Mexican tribal, cumbia, and dembow beats. (Way more aligned with the murkier stuff in the Wonderwheel / ZZK records backcatalogue than the clubbier 3BallMTY stuff). Plenty of hardcore, gabber and footwork elements, keeping it incredibly varied and true to its name “polymorph.” Straight out of CDMX. Start with 4 or 1. FCC Clean

(*1.) (4:01) Digital tribal with a hard hitting gabber bassline (2.) (4:53) Loose airy beat with thudding bass. Slow vocal effects and persistent electronic buzzing lends a spooky vibe. Great layered percussion (3.) (3:54) Pitched-up stringy beat with vocal snippets and the occasional cumbia sample. Relentless hardcore beat provides a strong backbone (*4.) (5:45) Freeform, multifaceted beat transitioning between hardcore, cumbia, and dembow. All manner of samples and effects with splashing liquids, birdcalls, etc. Awesome stuff—a true standout on the album (5.) (4:39) Buzzy fuzzed-out beat with flanger effects. Builds up and then settles in the second half into a chiller downtempo beat
