Winning improvements on an already victorious formula
Lorn - Ask The Dust

The future point-and-shoot interface that made ‘Nothing Else’ drop the heaviest of hip-hop tombstones, now has an upgrade. Still with gruelling 8-bit pressure points emerging around every corner, a tiny drop of newfound human depth piggybacks, with ‘Diamond’ in particular creating a euphoric meet-your-maker moment. Lorn builds winning improvements on an already victorious formula of boom-bap nightmares gone crypt walking.

8/10
