Air Max ’97 – Falling Not Walking

Air Max ‘97 returns to DECISIONS with his first release since 2018’s Nacre LP. Falling Not Walking delivers four new tracks written for dancefloors in his recently adopted UK home; two with the help of UK based artists: TSVI and LOFT.
Raucous and buzzy, Turgor features a Flea-like bassline engulfed in a manic vortex of snares. TSVI contributes a lean rhythmic backbone to collaborative track Paroxysm, which spirals into a charred place after a chasmic breakdown. Xhrinicibles, featuring Mancunian artist LOFT, locks into a heady groove teeming with pointillistic detail and gusts of latent hardcore-continuum atmosphere. Falling Not Walking, implying inner-ear dysfunction as it lurches and wobbles, brings the EP to an off-kilter close. Balancing the exuberance of arrival and new friendships with the angst of acclimatisation (to a faltering, divided Britain), Falling Not Walking showcases Air Max ‘97’s uniquely disorientating rhythms with some fresh outside input.
