A Peachy Divergence, Nepheww.

A Peachy Divergence, Nepheww.

If we’ve this one lingering qualm when it comes to vanguardist London beat monger Nepheww, née Jake Taylor, then it’s that his outpour has thus far proven all too incongruous at times. But, as we get to Aprikot Avenue, any past incompatibilities are momentarily forgotten, as we’re swept away down what sounds a motorway headed straight for some distinctly sordid underground joint in the insalubrious suburbs of an industrial megapolis. In place of service stations, we stop off at (again, inharmoniously radiant) Asiatic samples and dingy shuffles; mechanical squelches that sound evocative of R Plus Seven rewired via a revving McLaren engine; glimpses of Hi-NRG garage and southern hemispheric rhythms. All of which this time combines in a blur of unlikely synergy to suggest Taylor possesses both the vision and the prerequisite talent to make something all the more cogent than his scattily compiled SoundCloud may insinuate…
