KK / pure fragments EP
(CD:888-013CD / VINLY:888-12015)
The first lead-project in three years, "Pure Fragments EP" is a mighty collection of works made during the past three years. Fat heavy-weight beats and various highly skilled drum programming are what make KK's beats so attractive. Subversive melodies and mechanic acoustic noise somehow present itself with undeniably thick "live" air. "Comin" precisely oscillates rugged drums, and "Echoes" drops heavy beats on your neck. Subtly fine bass programming runs "Peak," while "Combo" exhibits finely exact kick drum inlayed beautifully. "Distance" carves a thorough beat pattern. "Xizm" dynamically rings the triple drum composition in a profoundly deep air, and "Uzu" chops up the rhythm finely and precisely for your stereophonic L and R.... Rich ideas completed within the sampler adds to the color scheme of definite skill.
