James Kumo returns to his KMusic imprint this November with ‘Yellow’ accompanied by remixes from Dan Curtin and Binny.
James Kumo has been releasing material since 2008 via the likes of Delsin sub-label Ann Aimee, Curle Recordings, Metamorphic, Connaisseur and of course his very own KMusic where he returns to here with some new original music.
Kicking things off is the original mix of Yellow from Kumo and we’re treated to an up-tempo, ethereal slice of Techno bringing swirling pad lines, weighty percussion and snaking stab sequences into the limelight, resulting in a raw and hypnotic opening cut. A ‘Dub Mix’ of ‘Yellow’ follows and as the name would suggest offers up a more sparse, rhythm and dub echo focused take on things.
On the flip side Metamorphic boss Dan Curtin steps up to rework ‘Yellow’ and delivers an upfront interpretation with snaking bass sequences, crunchy drums and bubbling synth flutters. Last up to round things off is Liverpool, UK’s Binny who remoulds the original number entirely with a smooth and floaty feel, bringing broken Detroit tinged drums into the mix while airy, warbling pads and resonant synth licks brilliantly flourish around the rhythmic foundation.
