AVA. RECORDS

Am Kinem's 2nd on AVA. Records About 30 minutes of hardcore feelings, echoes of by-gone raves and a million come down sessions rolled into one. "Erster Schlaf" kicks us off by pairing a slowed down breakbeat to melancholic drones and delicate, fluttering synth washes, flipping the template on its head an offering a moment of introspection. "K" unloads a hefty slab of house pressure onto the wax, conjuring up a mini-anthem as it's gliding bass and uncompromising drum programming leave a beautiful trail of destruction across the floor. Kinem keeps up the club vibrations as "Samus Aran" goes on a trippy interstellar techno charge - neck snapping snares and percussion elements complimenting the epic collage of buzzing synths and growling bass perfectly. "Madwiehlleeeers" takes the same sample as Moodymann's "Black Mahogany" (the track not the album) and turns it on its head - acidizing the track somehwat and making it bang a bit harder in the club. "John?" flies out the speakers with urgency, its fluttering synth organs floating nicely on a barrage of pounding kicks. Finally, "Weser Meser (Peace 2 BB)" concludes with broken machine rhythms, glitching mainframes and repeating mechanisms; embellished with lush piano licks and jazzy infusions. Truly exceptional stuff here from Am Kinem, a brilliant mini album offering some very different, highly stimulating sounds and feels. Most recommended.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Ridiculously well crafted house n beats EP which recalls the multifaceted genius of Moodymann & Carl Craig whilst sounding decidedly fresh and modern. TIP.
