About this item

"This Placid Place" is AM Khamsaa’s debut 12“ on Zurich based imprint (and Piccadilly endorsed...) Light of Other Days. The EP presents three original compositions and a remix by Phillip Otterbach. The original tracks have all been recorded at Phonetia Studio and are heavily based on analog synthesizers, miked recordings and outboard processing.

Using repetition, consonance and polyrhythm as important means of composition, AM Khamsaa explores the field in-between the functionality of modern club music and the tradition of American Minimal Music.

AM Khamsaa’s original pieces will please adventurous DJs as well as the curious lovers of new electronic compositions.


Matt says: We find Light Of Other Days shunning the Balearic sunshine for a shamanic offering to see us through the dying days of Winter. Cast in a spellbound patina you can hear the magic at play beneath the primative ancestral rhythms.
