PROJECT E present the “Kinks EP” another 3 tracker joining the dots between Italo Disco, Chicago House, & Minimal Avant-Garde.
The duo of Mark E & Nat Woodcock are joined by vocalist Greg Bird who turns in a dark infatuated vox on Title track “Kinks”, think early Felix da Housecat vs Larry Heard joined by Project E in a black country strip club. Where Boy in the Straw Hat sets out to juxtapose the hard hitting edges of detroit techno with soul laden keys & string work. The 10minute epic “Umbrella Creature” enforces the Minimal Avant Gard tag with classic Ostinato patterns jumping above, behind & beyond unexpected house percussion as soaring strings & keys melt you away.
This is PROJECT E’s second instalment in an ongoing series presented by Merc Music.
