About this item

After releasing a brilliant and stomping three-tracker on Kontra-Musik White Label last year, ex-Durian Brother Harmonious Thelonious returns to the Kontra-Musik family with an absolute gem of a record. If you've followed the producer's career you'll know exactly what to expect here; polyrhythmic proto techno tackle that's both playful and impossible funky. Harmonious Thelonious is a master of crafting organic sounding rhythms but arranging them in a manner that reminds one of a 1970's car factory. Primal pulses running through modern assembly lines, gears and pistons covered in green lianas. The result is a perfect symbiosis between living tissue and mechanical parts - dance music for primitive cyborgs.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Harmonious Thelonious returns to Kontra with more groove heavy polyrhythms, conjuring a humid rainforest scene, then pulling the curtain back (DMT style) to reveal the arcane machinery which makes everything tic.
