Home Art&Chill Mindfuck C.U.R.E. – BOOTS



Miami-born Jordy Asher (a.k.a. Boots) broke out as a producer when his moody beats became a highlight of Beyonce’s 2013 self-titled album. Yet his debut, Aquaria, is hardly the coming out party you’d expect from a guy who could’ve easily gone the route of an A-list hitmaker. There are no superstar cameos, and R&B is only a small element in a sound that often recalls Radiohead in electro-rock exploration mode, the spookiest Berlin Bowie or Tricky’s craggy Nineties trip-hop. Tracks like “Brooklyn Gamma” and “C.U.R.E.” are detailed studio constructions with an organic feel, driven by contorted, hard-hitting beats and bleary dissonance, feeling at once action-packed, tightly coiled and torpid.
