After releasing their debut album ‘Crooks and Lovers’ last summer to huge critical acclaim and racking up numerous end of year lists including the shortlist for Guardian’s First Album Award, plus sell out tours in North America, Australia and Europe, London duo Mount Kimbie announce the news of their next EP ‘Carbonated’. Set for release on 27th June on their label Hot Flush, the EP follows the release of the ‘Blind Night Errand’ EP and will be the final release from the album.‘Carbonated’, the lead track on the EP is joined by two previously unreleased tracks, the buoyant, effervescence of ‘Flux’ and ‘Bave’s Chords’, which showcase the lush, elegant percussive sound Mount Kimbie have become known for.
‘Bave’s Chords’ was recorded around their early EP ‘Maybes’ and ‘Flux’ was created during the album recordings.Airhead, who’s shortly releasing his own album on Brainmath and is member of James Blakes’ live band, subtly twists ‘Carbonated’ with his remix, while Belgian producer & DJ Peter Van Hoesen creates a six minute dark techno rework for the dancefloor. ‘Adriatic’, also from ‘Crooks and Lovers’ is transformed completely by Klaus with his style of detailed production hitting the mark once more. ‘Crooks and Lovers’ defined Dominic Maker and Kai Campos as an original and exceptional duo whose musical output refuses to be pigeonholed. Abundant in paradoxes, the album floats through dubstep and hip-hop, jazz, techno, post-rock, UK garage, shoegaze, indie and film scores to startling effect.
