Don't Go Home EP
FLASH RECORDINGS (GERMANY)
"With this EP, Kellerkind marks his debut on Flash Records with a full-on three-track vinyl EP that features one of those truly artfully-crafted covers Flash is known for besides its dancefloor-optimated musical output. It is also the dancefloor that this EP is focused on: On the one side there is 'Don't Go Home,' a punchy piece of minimal rhythm that one can wonderfully imagine in a foggy club environment filled with happy faces illuminated by sudden flashes of white light. A great loop that consists of a physical snare and some really well-produced effects anticipate the anti-rhythmic stabs that add a great oldskool feel to this 100% postmodern piece of functional minimal techno. The stabs form a melody that gives warmness and soul to this glowing array of glass and iron. On the flip, there is even more soul, and more house, too. What is hinted at on the main track becomes a nice reality on the other two tracks. 'Cache Cache' is a slowly-moving piece of minimal house with many warm elements: an atmospheric glow, some melodic synthies and these little, but wonderful bleeps. Add some closed hi-hats and a clap snare: this is as warm as your favorite blanket and a wonderful one for both the warm-up and the afterhour."
STIL VOR TALENT (GERMANY)
's "Backflash" works around a delicately-crafted, vintage Miami synth lead, a dangerously obese bassline and devilishly catchy hook.
's remix subtly shifts the original's elements around while extending its vocal sample. "Disco Light" features laser synths, bleeps and chugging basses that might just catapult you back to Paradise Garage in '78, were it not for the track's classicist house percussion. "Down To" features Kellerkind's own deep vocal hums, replacing a traditional bassline.
