About this item
Cult electronix mystery label 12th Isle returns with Parisian artist D.K and his concern for the nostalgia-tinged electronica of 90s Britain. Back room IDM, comedown session ambience or simply the soundtrack to doing the dishes as your stare across Princess Parkway, the six untitled canvasses here effortlessly draw you into an evocative and picturesque place.
At times reminiscent of Huerco S' dub-techno echoes - synths rippling slowly across crystalline sound lakes, grain delayed fragments ricocheting off cushion pads - and at others, the future-exotica worlds of Don't DJ or Sued with their electronically manipulated perx and completely otherworldly atmospheres.
Recorded live at the intimate South Korean venue The Edge, this limited 12" boasts, at once, fleeting moments of propulsive rhythmic tension, heavy doses of reverb and a glassy, cavernous sound design across the whole album which gives an infinite amount to space to what's on offer. A feast for the ears and highly recommended by us all here.
Matt says: Superb dreamy ambience conjured up with a firm grip on electronic trickery; more magic from the 12th Isle camp!
