The production duo of Kai Campos and Dom Maker have carved out something very special, with their two 12” releases to date under the Mount Kimbie alias. Releasing on Scuba’s Hotflush imprint – a label somewhat affiliated with dubstep and all its mutating forms - they've carved a highly successful niche without coating everything in an overtly shimmering gloss, sometimes leaving their track's snare drums space to snapple, letting them sometimes seethe offbeat momentarily.
Hotflush are set to release a duo of remix EPs from Kimbie shortly and ahead of their physical release the FaltyDL remix of 'Serged' is being made public (for the price of an email address). Here's what SR wrote about the EPs in last month's URB.com column:
"Comprising of refixes from the 2 Kimbie EPs to date there are versions of 'At Least,' 'Maybes' and 'Serged' by half time d&b dons Instra:mental, James Blake and FaltyDL respectively on the first 12” and interpretations of “Vertical” and “William” by SCB – Scuba’s militant house and techno guise – and Tama Sumo & Prosumer on the 2nd plate. Other than the obvious – my position deep in the colon of James Blake is patently well documented if you’re adept enough to use google at even a novice level – it’s the versions by Instra:mental and Tama Sumo & Prosumer, especially the latter, that really make each EP worth punting for."
