Album Review
Reviewed 2023-12-21
Sample-based #rave thumpers from #local Oakland producer and DJ, Bored Lord. Rooted in hardcore, but a deep pool of influences (UK garage, breakbeat, jungle) give this an indescribable old-school-new-school quality that explains the choice of title: “I want the industry people to be confused while the ravers understand the very moment they press play. I want to challenge everyone to name it.” Really consistent front to back, cohesive warm romantic themes throughout and excellent percussion and basslines.

TRY: 1, 8, 3, 2

1. (4.57) Energetic Space-Jam soundtrack type beat, with sampled “I’m looking for that love” and a hot swingy bassline. Killer
2. (4:49) Broken beat with a nice driving bassline and some jazzy keyboard
3. (4:02) Smooth and silky with occasional energetic pulses. Longing vocals and old school synth
4. (5:56) Skittering jungle beat with pitched samples and great bass warble
5. (6:22) Long intro: repeated distorted vocal samples over a floaty ambient backdrop. Crystalline shimmery broken beat drops at the 1:45 mark
7. (6:10) Drum n bass with pulsating bass, horns, and shimmery pads
8. (6:26) Drum n bass with stabbing percussion, ghostly and robotic vocal samples and nice atmospheric jazz samples
