MOUNT KIMBIE - MK 3.5: DIE CUTS | CITY PLANNING VINYL (LTD. ED. CLEAR 2LP)
LIMITED EDITION CLEAR 2LP VINYL
Release Date: 4th November 2022
"‘MK 3.5: Die Cuts | City Planning’ shows how Dom Maker and Kai Campos have grown over the past decade and demonstrates the two sides of Mount Kimbie’s aesthetic coin - each side produced entirely by either member. Dom’s side, ‘Die Cuts’, is colourful and melody-led, thriving on the spark of collaboration; Kai’s, ‘City Planning’, is tactile and unpredictable, the product of a deeply personal aesthetic voyage. The two sides complement each other through their contrasts. But in other ways they’re not so different. Both artists present a unique vision which stands apart from their peers; neither side could have been made by anyone but Mount Kimbie. The outcome of this creative journey is ‘City Planning’. Wild, warped and loopy, the album twists avant-garde signifiers from on and off the dancefloor into a deft and refined statement. Its sleek beats and stuttering arpeggios are caked with scuzz and personality, making for an album that’s warm and inviting even at its most confrontational."
