** REPRESS CREW ** Wild Oats don dada Kyle Hall steps up with a long awaited debut album under the KMFH moniker - expect rough, raw machine funk Detroit style across two slabs of wax on The Boat Party. Emerging at the age of 17 on FXHE, Hall has long been referred to as a wunderkind but this LP should really establish him as a fully fledged player in the pantheon of current Motor City producers. From the off, this eight track set feels like Hall recorded straight to tape, with his noted talent for incessant drum machine work and glistening melodics somehow making their presence felt amongst the thick, mulchy, saturated finish that clogs up the channels. Seemingly not occupied with any sort of conceptual ambitions beyond the economic statements of the cover art and title, Hall is left to work through his full range of devastating dancefloor manoeuvres with a few surprises along the way - the high octane ghetto tech "Finnapop" will surprise many. "Detroit Hustles Harder" remember!
