    All heavy-handed metaphysics aside, RP Boo proves on Legacy that he is truly a deft master of the drum machine, inspired by the potential in pure sound.

    For those of us who love music, in whatever genre, that distorts and mutilates its own conventions, Legacy! is undoubtedly one of the releases of the year, with an infectious, yet challenging groove that startles even as it enchants.

    It’s just 13 killer tracks hovering around the three and four minute mark originally designed for maximum 12” impact rather than a living room listen. But popping on headphones helps appreciate just how much Boo manages to squeeze into his tracks.

    Whatever tack they take Boo’s tracks are solid, heavyweight constructions that work as well as home listening as they would in a club

    Few truly distinctive examples of footwork have found their into the world lately, but RP Boo's LP goes a long way towards revealing the potential diversity and immensity of the genre.

    It's an album of scorching, scene-defining hits.

    Legacy collects about a decade of Boo recordings under one roof, although there’s no obvious arc of progression here--he’s consistently out on a limb, and with very few exceptions (‘There U Go Boi’, ultra-pitched-up and relatively linear ghetto house), this could only have come from his brain.

    Legacy’s most obviously rewarding moments, then, are when Space pushes this alien thrill to its limit.

    Kavain Space's freaky beats are done with a logic that maintains a crucial connection with dancers, even as it bamboozles, tests and wrongfoots them. Still, the rigor is exhausting, even alienating. [Jun 2013, p.46]

    This is music made for dancers (and highly dextrous ones at that).
