This is the debut album from The KDMS, who have lately been described as the "indie-disco answer to Adele." Then a German journalist wrote: "The KDMS could be for the new underground disco scene what Moloko were for the late '90s downbeat phenomena. A key band that connects current club music with great songwriting and the unique voice of a great soul diva." Three singles out in two years have seen a prominent fan base growing rapidly, creating a good buzz in the electronic music world. Tensnake, Jaymo and Hot Chip are fans. Hot Chip even got involved in the album: Felix Martin did a remix for "Tonight," and Alexis Taylor and Justus Köhncke are guests on the album and made a bonus track: a hypnotic alternative version of "Wonderman." The KDMS are London's electro soul diva Kathy Diamond and the super-talented young producer Max Skiba. On stage, they get support from three side musicians. Kathy and Max met a few years ago and immediately felt that there was a connection. Max had done a few things for labels like Under The Shade, Skylax and Record Makers. Kathy had worked with Maurice Fulton, Aeroplane and Toby Tobias. But since their first session it was clear that this cooperation could grow. There was a kind of magic in the air. When they make music together, a special energy emerges. They have soul. They are sophisticated. Sometimes melancholic. But then there is this dirty funk. The blogs love them. It seems that somehow they created the blueprint for a new, modern touch on electronic pop music. The indie disco-house movement is growing -- mainstream pop music is bored and is searching for new inspirations in the dance world. The KDMS emerges using state-of-the-art underground electronic styles, evolving them into a new, deep, dirty but glamorous pop sound. Slow, nasty, futuristic disco. A new genre-crossing style connecting different musical angles.
