Kemback is a Berlin-based producer, selector, violinist, teacher, and sound designer whose music is rooted in house and techno but often treads into the weird and wonderful worlds of jazz, soul, folk, and blues. With such a diverse musical background behind him, his latest EP ‘Moving Through Clouds‘ is every bit exquisite as you’d think.
Whilst his gritty drums and shuffling grooves bear the hallmark of the city he now calls home, his emotive strings and distant glimmering synths have a melodic sensibility that harks back to the tree-lined footpaths of the tiny Scottish village from which he takes his name.
These experimental combinations and attributes have a strong presence throughout the EP. In our pick, “Stepping Back”, Kemback seamlessly blends arps and saxophones together with a big room breakbeat, hanging in an impressive suspension.
‘Moving Through Clouds’ EP is scheduled for release via Needwant on 26th October 2018, order a copy here.
