DJ Mag: Wayward & XOA / Drumtalk- 9/10
Via DJ Mag:
Fort Romeau's Cin Cin label debuts this three-way collaboration EP, showing off the skills that have been bestowed on X.O.A and Wayward, and Crosstown Rebels alums DrumTalk. First up, on the A-side, X.O.A. and Wayward hurl together clattering Latin drums with warm synth chords for a frisky dub on 'Koto', while Afro vibes permeate the sumptuous, rolling 'Wayo Wayo'. On the flip, DrumTalk go all loose and wild on the intense 'Ariel', a DFA-style bombshell. Meanwhile, the deep, chugging disco of 'Red Haze' is enveloping, a pulsing bassline providing the propulsion, with unexpected sitars at the break. Superb.
