Peckham-based duo MOUNT KIMBIE have already caused a stir with their atmospheric releases, a percussive and experimental take on dubstep. Dominic Maker and Kai Campos first two eps caused a commotion when released last year, undergoing reworks from the likes of Faulty dl, SCB (Scuba’s darker techno alias) and their sometime collaborator James Blake. With their own remixes (Foals and The xx) becoming hot property, Mount Kimbie have been a core part of the growing scene in London often associated with labels like Hyperdub and Hessle Audio.
From dubstep to post rock, traces of influence are visible, but the band’s sound is very much their own. Sceneless and untethered from etiquette and genre codes, they float through dubstep and hip-hop, jazz, techno and ambient, post-rock, UK garage and film scores to startling effect.
CREEP are two girls from Brooklyn producing dark brooding electronica with shades of the gothic mastery that links them to other dark acts like Zola Jesus and Salem. The duo are calling in the likes of Nina Sky and Planningtorock to guest on tracks, as well as having The xx’s Romy Madley-Croft providing some guest vocals on their recent seductive single “Days”, released on Young Turks. Though they’ve been acting mainly as producers recently, their now playing the first live shows, including a date at Heaven, supporting Mount Kimbie.
SAMPHA is a 20 year old from Morden who has remixed the likes of The XX and Laurel Collective, among others. Decribing his music as ‘a kind of 8-bit Soul’, Sampha mixes raw blues and soul with urban house and stuttering electronic drums.
