Currently putting the finishing touches to his follow up album, scheduled for autumn 2004, let us draw your attention to Corymb. Happily much more substantial than a stop-gap album, Corymb is an assemblage of wonderful dissonance in the shape of brand new tracks and remixes from the premier league of leftfield producers, including Four Tet, cLOUDEAD, Mogwai, Lali Puna and Boards of Canada. The album morphs from the heady crunch of the Venetian Snares rinse-fest to the lucid ambience of the giddy take of Last Walk by Boards of Canada, giving us a glimpse of Boom Bips sonic touchstones, from folk, electronic ambience and mutation, avant-rock and weird hip hop and jazz. Most exciting of all are the new songs, shedding light on where this musically ambitious songwriter and producer is heading. Never happy with being described a pure hip hop producer, Boom Bips influences from across the musical spectrum come to the fore in the new tracks From Left to Right, Morning and a Day and In the Tree Top where he takes sound manipulation into glorious new forms. Tracks from his second Peel Session recorded at Maida Vale last year also make an exclusive appearance, which is both a treat and an honour. This is going to be a busy year for Boom Bip. Hes just finished recording an EP of brand new material with vocalist Gruff Rhys from Super Furry Animals. The two became musical allies when Boom Bip opened for the Furries on their US tour last year. The EP should be out in the summer. In the meantime we can collectively revel in the talent that is Boom Bip. If this is a starting point for you, then be sure to get hold of the first album and form an orderly queue for the fresh album later in the year. As the Lex label hits the headlines with the current Danger Mouse brouhaha, settle in for the next round, cos in Boom Bip, they have found their very own gem.
