"He has many faces and wigs to wear while sitting here: his two albums as Eight Frozen Modules on Orthlorng Musork showcase a spiky hairdo with heady rhythm programming and harsh sounds while the premature wig fluffs it up with deep house styles. Other aliases such as Dubloner and electronic music composer build up his colorful discography on labels like Planet Mu, City Slang, Tigerbeat 6, Force Tracks and Skor. Under the flag of [A]pendics Shuffle, Ken has also released two well-received 12"s on Orac and Narita. His new [A]pendics Shuffle release on Proptronix is his most balanced cut so far. Smooth hair starts with a techno base but maximizes volume with Ken's unique razor techniques. Vocal snips and sharp percussion split hairs while the shape is defined with zig zagging melodies and bouncing bass. Each piece is full of filigrees from an eclectic set of influences while maintaining a funky forward motion. Among them, Twit and a Half plays with Mouse On Mars-like melodies, profusely mine bobs about on top of a Köln techno framework, and some Prince style singing is chopped up on wasted space. The multifarious stylings of this mini album stick together to form something extraordinary. It's all dance music for the discotheque but is also perfect to listen to while in the cutting chair at the salon."
