Jeremy Hyman steps up to FT with the first of two 12″ EPs that are a coordinated blast of colorful, galaxy-edge plastic techno from the master percussionist who moonlights in Lifted, Boredoms, Animal Collective, and more. Always rhythmatic in exciting ways, Hyman’s drum programming here is more arms than buttons, injecting a fly human element in the 12″. «Slide» does what it says with amazing technoid bass work and a propulsive sense of timing, «Madness» hovers and falls and hovers again, and «Tinted Mirror» is some sort of Foodman-meets-Prescription-Records house symphony, rising and rising and rising. Tip!
