The mercury was a mocking 113 this afternoon, making recovery from Off the Books impossible. Slurred recollections and crystalline images will come later. In brief, Mount Kimbie came through and crushed the buildings, holding 200 people-plus hostage until 1:00 a.m. on a Monday morning.  Shlohmo remixed “Pretty Boy Swag” until he looked like Jesus, and everyone else delivered performances that deserve 400 words apiece. There were Flying Lotus, Samiyam, and Hudson Mohawke spottings, but no Ricci. It was as almost as good as Golddiggers: Secret of Bear Mountain, and slightly more successful.

The appropriate soundtrack for convalescence is a track called “Sacre Cool,” from Young Montana, who hails from Coventry. Since I wrote about him first, he’s been repeatedly Pitchforked, which means that he is the greatest talent to emerge in the five day window between the last beatmaker to be compared to J Dilla. Moratorium. He also dropped by Andrew Meza’s BTS radio and laid down a blistering 56 minute set including Kimbie, Mohawke, Shlohmo, and his own unreleased tracks. Plus, the Crooklyn Dodgers ’95. He is 19-years old and an Alpha Pup. Alright kid.
