Artist: Khristian K
Title: The Space Between Us EP
Label: Catch Recordings
Release date: 8th February 2016
Genre: Techno/ House
Budapest resident and maker of Minimal, Techno and some such Khristian K, gets a three tracker out on Catch Recordings that was founded in 2013 and the label focuses on quality forward thinking music, being their main ethos.
The first one in the EP ‘Jupiter Mission’ is high gloss, immensely dense fare. Khristian K incorporates demolishing amounts of digital sharpness at the core, some groove that one can’t quite get hold off, yet may get propelled in directions that don’t have a real direction as the bass line lashes and the high frequency clatters jostle against precise dance beats, and a muted vocal sample complete this tireless atmospheric Techno pounder.
Side B throws you ‘Apollo 18’ that for the most part destroys all rhythm, shards of monochrome glitch stutters with broken mechanisms of spacey dense bass. Its barren dusty interiors shudder about making you shiver inside, doomed and relentless. Finally, ‘Mystical Treatment’ has absorbing insides that quall about in terse and stern fashion, heavy in high percussion and a drummy bass line swagger harks out electronic synths. All in all, make what you will off it, this entire release does not have the conventional designs of a dance record and is eccentrically accented, altogether in its own new musical space.
