Mount Kimbie: live review

mountkimbie-5.15.2013-660x351

Mount Kimbie got the crowd dancing, jumping and bopping about at The Sinclair on Monday night. The sweet, low-key London electronica duo played a 50 minute set using a bevy of instruments along with music sequencers, samplers and synthesizers. Kai Campos and Dominic Maker in addition to tour drummer Tony Kus are currently on tour to support their second album Cold Spring Fault Less Youth [Warp Records]. While there’s not a lot of crowd interaction a gentle bliss washes over you. For this post-dubstep, ambient aural experience it’s a bonus to be among other fans and music lovers to fully appreciate it.

October 29: CSFLY Remixes [Warp Records], a new 12” of reworked tracks taken off this year’s Cold Spring Fault Less Youth, with remixes from DJ Koze, Kyle Hall and Lee Gamble.

Zomby: music review

Turn on. Tune in. drop out. That’s pretty much what I think of electronica. I can’t listen to it all the time. I could never dance to it all night. It’s good for exercising. It’s good for getting pumped up or for relaxing. It reminds me of college in the early 90s. So I get a flashback listening to the new release Nothing by Zomby [a heralded UK producer]. I don’t know techno music enough to distinguish anything by degrees. I could never differentiate Zomby from anything else. The first song on Zomby’s new EP “Labrynith” is very upbeat and makes you want to jump up and dance whereas “Sens” and “Skyhigh” relinquish you deep into blissful oblivion. Gentle pulsing and softer beats aurally soothe and extend that relaxation. I particularly appreciate the effervescent “Stargate5.”
