- High Ache / No Worries EP
Kwench Records | 14.12.2018
Bringing a lustrous dose of disco-doused headiness to Cassy’s Kwench Records imprint is Australian producer Kristin Velvet with a stunning two-track outing.
Kristin Velvet has been infiltrating the dance music bubble for a decade on a global-wide scale. Promoting and DJing in Tokyo was followed by a stint as Australian label manager of UK-based imprint Domino Records, and most recently she’s enjoying cultivating a reputation as an essential figure of Berlin’s club scene with her being on Watergate’s artist agency and co-running Berlin-based house and techno label Arms & Legs with Daniel Steinberg and Nils Ohrmann.
“Road-ready club goodness is what Kwench Records stands to consistently deliver, whether that be house or techno. Kristin has the flair and ability to experiment with both – she’s had Louie Vega and Cari Lekebusch give her work a rerub which is proof of her broad appeal. She’s continuously proving herself to be a reliable artist for pushing standout tracks, and I regularly turn to her for adding a kick to my sets.” – Cassy
Inspired by hallowed New York club Paradise Garage meets the ever-multifaceted Robert Hood and his alter ego Floorplan, her EP was hewn during a post-raving flash of creativity with her head in the studio and heart in the club.
This EP is one built on feelings, with powerhouse track ‘High Ache’ jumping out the bag to grab you by the ankles. Authentic disco drums build anticipation before the uplifting strings come swinging through, delivering a euphoric sense of satisfaction. ‘No Worries’ runs further with the disco dice as we get a second feel-good workout, and it’s one that’s packed with sassy vocals and reach for the air moments.
