Kellerkind – Tristesse EP
Label: HIVE AudioRelease: 18/03/2013
Swiss national Kellerkind really has been at the top of his game recently when it comes to exploring new quality soaked electronic pastures. His latest effort sees him return to the country’s fabled HIVE Audio imprint for the release of the frankly quite exceptional “Tristesse” EP.
Melodic chords and a tantalising, groove-centric bassline provide the spark on the title track, making it the sort of cheeky weapon in a DJ’s arsenal that’ll set a night’s wheels in motion in mood enhancing warm-up fashion.
Beautiful, harmonic synth washes are the order of the day on the sultry B-side for “La Voyage”; a track that’s glistening with colourful hues and really does live up to its namesake by taking the listener on a musical ‘voyage’. In this case, it’s a journey that’s nestled somewhere between 80s flair and modern-day production values. Excellent stuff from the man they call Kellerkind.
