Debuting in 2015, Berlin-based imprint Kynant Records carved itself a name in the gloomy territories of dub techno with releases from Tensal, Echologist, TM404, plus remixes from Donato Dozzy, Mike Parker and Pangaea. Two years after his inaugural release, Max Durante arrives back on the imprint with his debut album ‘The Experiment‘, scheduled for release 23 February 2018.
Composed of eight tracks ‘The Experiment’ features both Retina.it and Fabrizio D’Arcangelo, one half of Rephlex’s D’Arcangelo, with whom he produced under the alias of Automatic Sound Unlimited and organised one of the biggest Italian raves of the time, the PLUS 8 RAVE in 1991.
Our pick, “EX-P05“, featuring Fabrizio D’Arcangelo, places you in a state of anticipation that precedes a rave. An abstract white noise mimics a flickering neon light, permeating throughout the whole track, whilst a mighty downtempo bass line gradually increases intensity, dragging up fleeting hi-hats and a dusty acidic synth.
The Experiment LP is released via Kynant Records on 23rd February 2018, order a copy here.
