- Take A Trip (Incl. Point G / Oli Furness Remixes)
Music Is Love Records | 16.02.2015
French DJ & Producer Mr.KS caused a serious storm in 2014 and his newest cut for 2015 drops on one our favourite labels Music Is Love Records in the middle of February. The Ep is titled ‘Take A Trip’ and its killer. With two originals and two remixes from Oli Furness and Point G.
On the flip we have the second original from Mr.KS entitled ‘Groove On’, retaining a similar aesthetic with sparse, shuffling drum lines and a meandering bass lick, while echoing synth stabs and resonant sweeps swirl around the driving elements in the depths of the cut. Man of the moment Point G then rounds off the release with his take on ‘Groove On’, employing punchy drum sounds, stuttering bass tones and deft processing throughout to create a more frenzied and energetic interpretation.
Title cut ‘Take A Trip’ kicks off the EP and in typical Mr.KS fashion we’re treated to a jangling percussive cut with an infectiously hooky bass line and unfolding, hypnotic synth lines, resulting in a classy groove-led workout to open up the package. Label-founder Oli Furness steps up next to reshape title-track ‘Take A Trip’, opting for a more electronic-tinged approach with moody atmospherics, looped vocal chops and a penetrating stab based hook, while the heavily distorted, crunchy rhythms instil a raw and heady overtone to the composition.
The likes of Visionquest have been dropping his track, defiantly one to watch out for this year.
