London-based production duo, Mount Kimbie, are a pair that are trying to elude classification; sometimes they’re experimental, sometimes their not, but they are creating their own sound which leans them to the more experimental dubstep and hip-hop, but it oozes emotion and ambient soundscapes.
We have a free track for you, called ‘Sergred’, which remixed by faultyDL. It’s taken from their hotly anticipated EP which will be in two parts on 19 April. Mount Kimbie are currently recording their debut LP due for release this summer on Hotflush.
Hotflush presents two EPs of remixes of Mount Kimbie. On the first, Dom and Kai’s debut ‘Maybes’ gets a soulful treatment from their sometime collaborator James Blake, as heard on Scuba’s recent SUB:STANCE mix on Ostgut Ton.
‘Serged’ is reshaped into woozy garage by New Yorker FaltyDL. On the flip, DJ Mag’s 2009 Best Breakthrough Producers Instra:mental transform “At Least” into a blissed-out, bass-heavy 4/4 roller. The second EP features Panorama Bar’s Tama Sumo & Prosumer reworking ‘William’ into a shuffling deep house groove, and Scuba under his SCB guise delivering a murky, cerebral techno remix of “Vertical”.
