Saint-Petersburg-based beat experimentalist, Ritmo Sportivo resident and one of the top team of Russian electronic musicians – Cream Child, turning upside down his signature sound in his second full-length album “School Skulls“.
❝The album starts with quite loop orientated tracks like “Photographer” and I was already getting a bit tired! “Accordion” was the first awakening with great arrangements and a lot of swing into my personal wolrd of this album. The next step is “With The Wind“… I really like the claps behind the simple kick set but the sample is too frisky. After some little skips of “Giovanni & Kids“, I found the dope tune “Yellow Mountain” with his lovely atmospheric breaks and offbeat bassline. The song develops into getting more and more stuffed and overloaded at the end but it’s the perfect groove for a dancefloor at 4AM in Berlin. All in all it’s a good album but sometimes a bit irrelevant and sluggish. The highlights are strong and that’s why it’s nice to order the selfmade limited CD version.❞ 5.5/10 – Gordon Gieseking
