ONLINE CONVERSATIONS

Forest Flame is the debut solo effort of the Texas-based Shea McGilvray. His previous works have been featured in compilation and remix releases on labels such as Echovolt, Shimmering Moods, and Bokhari’s Swamp Tapes.

Second release from the KP-approved Online Conversation and a different vibe this time round. Polyrhythmic, neo-tribal vibrations are delivered on EP opener "Redsky Porch" which sees a meandering, echo-drenched lead wind its way through a series of interesting perc hits and tuned metallics. "Terra" sees a swirling, hazy soundbed converge on shuffled lo-fi hats and a half-time kick. The very epitome of shadow-sculling, outsider house; blunted AF and groovy as hell. Yes mate. Title track "Forest Flame" sees deep atmospheres peppered with reverb heavy drum hits, hinting at some evocative and cinematic moods. Final track "Manzanita" sees another heady whirlpool of influences, somewhere between Deepchord's "Hash Bar Remnants", Anthony Naples Proibito output and the delicate poise of Ricardo Villalobos.

Already getting support from Best Available Technology and Will Lister.

Matt says: Big label currently on my radar drop record number two. Ditching the lo-fi jungle and uptempo house bangers for a more sedative, hypnotic and shamanic affair. One for the smokers as much as the dancers this one...

Lo-fi jungle (!!!), party ready house and distorted club jams on this killer 12" from Online Conversations, highly highly anticipated from our inhouse party freak Kickin' Pigeon! Yes, you heard right - lo-fi jungle, with SZCH adding to D. Futures' "I Care" blueprint set out on Natural Sciences, ramping up the chipmunk vox, adding a saturated VHS hue and layering up the breaks as "Ana's Theme" gives us all a taste of that saccharine-flooded mayhem we first tasted back in 2016. Vancouver's taste making MPC songstress, D. Tiffany demonstrates just why she's regarded as one of the most important producers of the new school as "Hoppin' In" flies out the stacks in 5th gear - intent on wrecking havoc across any fun loving dancefloor it's given airtime on. A joyful amalgamation of booty / ghetto, Dance Mania and lo-fi attributes, its undeniably 2k18 whilst possessing a fuzzy sense of dance music nostalgia, which should ensure its enjoyment by the under 25s as much as the over 40s. SAKI's "U Make My Head Spin" keeps us locked in a lo-fi glaze as he fires up the compressors for a pumpin', scuzzed-out deep house ride. Finally, Tlim Shug's "Dream Control" sees us end the EP in a moment of synthesized serenity, somewhere between DJ Boring, Legowelt and Subjoi - again with a mid-shelf frequency load and rib-tickling 150hz kicks. A breathtakingly good EP this, featuring the celebrated sounds of RIGHT NOW. You need.
