Rat Man – Hugo Paixao – Kombination Research

Hugo Paixao’s “Rat Man” is a rolling dive into sound, with characteristic synth stabs leading the way. A crackling rhythm section keeps us on our toes, while mechanized, percussive madness provides the grim backdrop. The one and only Cari Lekebusch transforms the affair into a hazy ride, with a cavernous approach engulfing all elements, without ever losing momentum. Topping it off with style, he adds some off-killter chord action to keep our ears peeled and mouth watered.
