Euphony In Electronics returns for a second phase with the original crew...

 

One Point Two sees the Brighton/London sextet of producers regather for a remix rotation, re-shaping a track apiece into their own vision, blurring analogue and digital channels, and producing 6 re-imagined versions that glimpse the creative flow of each.

1. Alphabets Heaven - Amin (Proprio's High Humidity Remix)

Proprio brings a stuttering post-monsoon of a remix to Amin, loaded with pressure-dropping atmospherics and
glistening synths, saturating the jewel sharp original, it fies with a mutant 2-step shuffe and transports a snapping
outernational swing.

---

2. Inwards - Limbic System (Alphabets Heaven Remix)

The heaving analogue synth intimacy of Limbic System is transmitted into an unabashed foor banger,
Alphabets Heaven excites with a latent garage bounce and ratcheting percussion, its warping propeller bassline
and massive refrains are a call to move.

---

3. Electric Ape - Theme from The Infernal Machine

(Scaramanga Silk's Remix from the Miniaturisation Laboratory)

The doom-laden Infernal Machine is hacked and rewired by Silk's wizardry; spellbound and tamed, laced with
dazzling arpegiations, semiconducting and re-processing into a bright, beat-less high defnition synthesised display.

---

4. Scaramanga Silk - Velvet Raindrops (Electric Ape's Dog Ate My Remix)

Glancing back to the halcyon days, Electric Ape builds an epic structure around that bassline, circling chimes set
the rhythm for the frantic percussive techno-riffng beatwork and an impending thump that cuts through the digisymphonic
strings.

---

5. Proprio - Columbo (Atomico Remix)

Striking Columbo with a disorientating blow, Atomico's semi-conscious version distresses the groove, veering
back and forth, that heavy rhythm yields under wrought metallic distortion, sinewy beats and a sweetly rousing
guitar refrain.

---

6. Atomico - Forever (Inwards' Forever Far Removed Remix) 02:40

As the original is obscured and suppressed, Inwards builds an intense horizon-dominating haze; swaying,
hypnotising, lulling... until the ambient drama is seared & paced with low-end feeding analogue bass commands.

Euphony In Electronics / One Point One (KIN-005)

 

Electric Ape

Opening with the uneasy heart-beating toll of Theme from The Infernal Machine, rising up with an inescapable stomp-march, its gloriously cold analogue bite might soundtrack a Zombi attack on the outskirts of Detroit.

...

Inwards

Tentatively, Limbic System follows. Rebalancing to ambient calm with half-glanced shimmers and softly pulsing neuro-transmissions, the atmosphere breathes and lulls hypnotically, clicking, popping and geiger-counter ticking from within.

...

Alphabets Heaven

The intensity is ratcheted up with Amin, a quick-witted liquid beat that modulates, shifts and snaps, with a knowing nod, yet a fresh tenacity. Spacious, sharp, percussive; this circling groove deserves a jittering dancefloor.

...

Atomico

Re-doubling the energetic leap with this almost-lost production from 99', the taut electronic funk-beat of Forever brings an otherworldly depth, ghostly atmospherics and hot-footed drums serenade the divine closing quarter' molten synth-line.

...

Scaramanga Silk

Condensing into electrically charged cloud cover, the tropical ambience of Velvet Raindrops weighs heavy. The sultry electronic climate swells and swirls, threatening to explode, still the rich humidity reigns supreme.

...

Proprio

Finally, we stumble into the drowsy, drunken, distorted synth-groove of Columbo. Off-balance, world-worn, the excavated crooked beat rocks back and forth, strewn with end-of-night murmurs, yet crucially breaking into thumping coherence.

E.I.E.1.1 received support from National, International and Specialist shows including BBC Radio 3's Late Junction courtesy of Nick Luscombe & Verity Sharp, BBC6 Music courtesy of Gideon Coe, Pilote via Train 45, Lost Idol on Morning Glory, Chris Wave on Seventh Wave, Spirit Of Gravity on Resonance Extra and on rotation via Danish curated radio station, The Lake.

The fourth release from Kin-Aesthetic Recordings, featuring 7 luminescent reinterpretations of Kin;Aesthetic's First Impression E.P...

Second-first-impression

A spectrum spanning burst of remixes, Brighton's rapidly heating electronics scene is represented with varying shades of crisp analogue beat electronics from a trio of emerging producers, Electric Ape, Inwards, and Proprio, while the droned atmospheric textures come from cult ambient specialist, Brighton's revered Listening Mirror.

Weighing in from further afield, the esteemed and longstanding Pilote brings his finely honed downbeat craftsmanship to bear while quicker-stepping London pressure comes from a pair of shadowy ascending figures, touting two distinct sharp electronic grooves, Clas Tuuth and Scaramanga Silk.

Tracks from the EP received plays on BBC6 Music from Stuart Maconie, Don Letts and Gideon Coe as well as attention from specialist shows on XFM, NTS, Radio Reverb and Frome FM.

Kin;Aesthetic + Scaramanga Silk

Dark Energy EP

Our third release presents Dark Energy, a split effort of excitable electronics from the ephemeral London producer Scaramanga Silk, alongside label curator Kin;Aesthetic.

Producing an original track each as well as a reciprocal remix of the others, with four tracks in total, the Dark Energy EP explores Sci-Fi futurism taking in aspects of Techno, Electro, 2-Step and Bass.

1. Kin;Aesthetic - Killer Joule 04:35

Kin;Aesthetic opens the ‘Dark Energy’ EP with the spring-loaded Killer Joule, a rough-edged, calorific floor shaker.

The endlessly jittery, Franco-filtered, hyperactive homage is propelled with a raucous energy and naïve electro-pop vigour. Drawing on ‘Homework’ era Daft Punk as a key influence, this little rocket aims to revisit the classic French sound with renewed spark.

2. Kin;Aesthetic - Killer Joule (Scaramanga Silk's Remix from the Three City Triangle) 03:20

Scaramanga Silk's take of Killer Joule is a considered re-imagining that expands his previous outings. The result is a deconstructed, techno-checking re-take.

Arresting the original and re-engineering with industrially refined mechanised beats, Silk builds his own motoring warehouse thriller. Metal-worked rhythms and grinding bass rub against moody growls and
harp-like sparkles, all conspicuously gathered somewhere between London, Detroit and Berlin.

This techno-fusion culminates in a Tronik House meets Teebs encounter, where rave bass joins glittering melodica.

3. Scaramanga Silk - Odyssey of the Burnt Out Star 04:26

Scaramanga Silk's own offering is a glassy, cold-fission, synth-strung hybrid.

Odyssey Of The Burnt Out Star unfolds with impending menace, 2-stepping beats fidget and cut through ominous glacial synth layers, ghostly gas pocket swells and deep-set bassline eruptions.

If Burial and Com Truise remixed the Bladerunner soundtrack, it might just sound like this....

4. Scaramanga Silk - Odyssey of the Burnt Out Star (Kin;Aesthetic's Neutron Star Remix) 07:24

Kin;Aesthetic's reciprocal remix takes a soaring new trajectory, burning and transforming with energetic bursts, it turns the
original elements towards an epic fusion, embracing the 2-step essence and morphing into a shifting, shimmering, shuffling,
heat-treated blaze, all fuelled by the Odyssey Of The Burnt Out Star.

A colossal reworking which hints at classic Detroit records (in the vein of Carl Craig and Underground Resistance), but with a fresh rhythmic take that launches it into 2014 and beyond.

Produced by Kin;Aesthetic & Scaramanga Silk respectively.

Tracks 2, 3 & 4 mastered by Kev at Berry St. Studio, London.

BBC radio 6music

The EP picked up airplay on BBC6 music from Nemone, with Scaramanga Silk's remix getting a spin on her Electric Ladyland show.

First Impression EP

The first release on Kin-Aesthetic Recordings, the First Impression E.P. came from label founder Kin;Aesthetic, introducing 4 distinct yet familial tracks, replete with DIY assembled beatwork, nagging arpeggiations and a hint of slightly awkward electronic pop...

 

1. Internal Mechanisms 05:59

2. Swathes 04:06

3. Hyper-Ventilate 04:59

4. Clutch Control 03:48

 

Released: 08 April 2013.

1&2 Mastered by Kev at Berry Street Studio, London.                

3&4 Mastered by Kin;Aesthetic at The Scaffold, Brighton.

Beginning with the heart-beaten distant rumble of Internal Mechanisms, the pulsing groove and transfixing melody grow alongside electrical bleeps, whirs and pops, before jumpstarting to life with a cascade of machine-like synth sparks.

The rising tidal unease of Swathes follows; looming layers of sinister synth pull you beneath the claustrophobic haze, broken only by a disorientated pattern of calming thumps, lighthouse ticks and distress flare snares.

On the flip, we're confronted by the heavily arpeggiated hip-hop urgency of Hyper-Ventilate, a breathing, heaving groove that expands from slight anxiety to full-blown emergency. Rolling drums and warping percussion join forces with increasingly intense poly-arpeggiations, building and fusing to a steamrolling head.

Finally, we explode into the closing quarter with the brightly-lit, jagged compute-pop of Clutch Control. Brittle synth-lines tussle to solicit the clapped-out RnB groove, searing through the clatter with climbing euphoria before collapsing with nowhere left to go.

Produced by Kin;Aesthetic between 2004-2013.
