"Kindisch is now eighteen releases old, and its mission -- to uncover new talent, and to provide a platform for producers to evolve and experiment -- is more passionate than ever. This time, the reins are handed to Sascha Braemer, aka Hirtenfellner, and Philip Bader, who build on the promise of their releases on Sup Dub and Get Physical. 'Mamba Drums' is, as its name suggests, a percussive, Latin-tinged affair, with sweeping builds and heavy drops, layer upon layer of locomotive percussion and a skeletal four-note vamp designed to whip the listener into a state of frenzy (and sure to be successful in this aim!). A male vocal sample pervades on 'Thrill,' this time more gruff, more laconic, and edited so that the words become another percussive element rather than carriers of meaning. Deep whirlpools of delay open up below a surface drift of jazz-tinged chords; from a minimalist sound palette, Bader and Braemer paint a vastly evocative, effusive picture that will transport the listener, or dancefloor, to a strange and addictive place. 'Put your arms around me,' implores the soul-infused vocal sample on B 'Around,' over a yawning vista of synth chords bridged with sibilant snares and subtle but earth-moving edits that leave no doubt as to Braemer and Bader's mastery of dancefloor dynamics."
