written and produced by neilon pitamber dub kult is a dj and producer who has an instinctive feel for rocking a dance-floor and the skills with which to express himself. live and on record, he plays techno and house sometimes deep, sometimes hard but always infused with some kind of off-kilter alien funk. this particular idiosyncratic approach to funk is yet again compiled on his new ep "dew", which compiles three raspy tracks and oscillates between the poles minimal, experimental and house.
starting with "krug", dub kult presents a dry minimal groover which creates diffusion on the floor, being packed with cold 8bit fx and lots of percussive elements, which whirl through it?s own hall holodeck. yet, dub kult effortlessly manages to juggle all these elements within the context of conditional structure. the second track "dew" carries on where "krug" has left but offers a slightly more tidy, yet immensively trippy microcosm full of fuzzing and crawling chip-ants.
the third tune "big words and excuses" is rather laid back experimental, with subbass snippets and rhythmic wooden sticks on top. the texture is surrounded by filtered fx and chopped vocals. last but not least, we have a remix by miguel tutera, who takes on "krug" and transforms it into a slowly building, intense driver with damped, yet nicely evolving chords which maintain the dark, trippy nuances of the original, with a focus on atmosphere.
to summarize it, these tracks are a feast, certainly not for the tender-footed, but for those who prefer to use their ears to get out of the muck and beam into a sonic world of edgy incredibilities, which couldn?t be more directly. text written by sebastian redenz
