We featured Estonian artist Kusto on this blog recently and it would appear word has been spreading throughout the local music scene over there – this just dropped into our inbox courtesy of Käärkäsi (another name I’m inevitably going to pronounce wrong).
The theme is basement-thumping dark garage reminiscent of Zed Bias and El-B‘s earlier work. Filthy undertones are punctuated by moments of melodic bliss, but you won’t relax for long – the persistent development of skippy rhythms and the grubby sub bass grinding away underneath keep your limbs moving. For that reason in particular, this little lot are going straight into the ‘playing out’ folder.
Released under the Lejal Globe imprint, you can grab all 5 tracks on iTunes or Amazon, or if you would rather get a 320 or wav (and why not) they are available on Juno. Preview the whole thing below via Soundcloud. Go on then!
