“KMPZ SESSIONS (Part 1)”
KMPST brings the best of the Moscow underground electroacoustic free improv tablet electronica and marks the beginning of a new exciting era on top-40.org with back-to-the-roots hidden gems, original hits, and more entertaining explorations of the unknown.
KMPZ SESSIONS are designed as an acoustic labyrinth without exits but with many escape routes through paradoxical gaps in the aural continuum. Primordial, almost shamanic rhythms meet futuristic mech-a-droids in the vortex of high-freq noises and digital glitches, Amnesia Scanner versus self-mutated Autechre audio algorithms, dark soundscapes, and Muslimgauze’esque faux ethnic vibes.
The opening track KMPZ 015, a rudimentary clicks’n’çutz dark breakbeat anthem, sends us off on a rather epic hour-long journey through an abstract experimentalist interacoustic universe. From suspenseful, uncanny deep dub pulsations on KMPZ 001 to a slowly unfolding, swampy bass micro-ambient soundscape KMPZ 004, with a slightly attenuated KMPZ 008’s distant motive and granular proto-rhythmic vibrations and entrancing melodies of KMPZ 012, KMPST presents a compelling yet highly abstract musical story.
