About this item
Kermesse hail from Buenos Aires and are a the trio consisting of Pedro, Muno and Defi. Following previous solo work they now collaborate, conjuring up skillfully crafted productions that combine South American folk, downbeat and hypnotic synth work into their own distinctive, highly listenable sound, which apparently shines even more so through their inspired live shows.
The vinyl EP consists of 3 essential album tracks, plus a wonderful remix by Dandara. "Sunday Glide" has 'radio hit' written all over it - I could easily imagine this being a featured track on 6Music - it's up-to-date electronic production, unfathomably catchy vocals and slightly exotic nature lending it to a whole manner of music fans and genre camps. "Le Fleur" injects their palette with a touch of swing, dare-I-say-it ever so slightly Balkan-esque but just about getting away with it due to some incredibly detailed synth patches and effect mastering; plus a lush snake-charmer flute line that really takes the track to a faraway place.
Flip and opener "Sunday Glide" gets remixed by said star, Dandara; amplifying the the breakdowns and drops and making it glide out on a plain of serenity - perfect for soundtracking a million sunrises across the holiday house destination of the world. "Bleepio" concludes, and addresses the dancefloor with another meticulously constructed tropical-house jam that bounces and swings in all the right places. I challenge anyone not to shake their shit juusst a little bit to the sounds of Kermesse! Wonderful!
