Mount Kimbie drop four new tracks including a slowthai/Danny Brown collaboration
Innovative electronic UK duo Kai Campos and Dom Maker, better known as Mount Kimbie have shared four brilliant new portions of electronica. The release was split into two AA-sides, with each pair of tracks produced by a different member and dubbed MK 3.5.
Conveniently, Maker was behind the two vocal-led tracks “In Your Eyes” featuring slowthai and Danny Brown while Liv.E features on “a deities encore”. Each is a dazzling showcase of drippy, sensual, bass-driven beats with trickling vocal cuts.
Campos delivered two instrumentals, “Q” and “Quartz”. Each is more of an experimental piece of up-tempo electronica for fans of Four Tet or Floating Points with clattery, jittery sounds. The complete release is a polarising set of tracks that demonstrates their intricate range.
Here’s hoping for a full-length release or even some solo projects in the not too distant future!
