Hotflush Recordings presents a brand new production duo that eludes classification: Mount Kimbie. Based in London, they have developed a truly unique sound whose experimental rhythms lend themselves to the fringes of dubstep, wonky and hip hop, but ooze with emotion and echoing ambient soundscapes that take the listener to an entirely different place.
This first release features four tracks, which capture their evolving sound. The minds behind Mount Kimbie, Dominic Maker and Kai Campos, both 23, met at university and began making music together in a home studio in Peckham. Hints of their influences from hip-hop, jazz, dubstep and experimental electronica can be heard in their productions.
Both Mount Kimbie EP’s 'Maybes' and ‘Sketched On Glass’ have already been well received, with support coming from DJs including Mary Anne Hobbs’ Scuba, Rob Booth, Ramadanman and Gilles Peterson
Now with their fantastic remixes for The Big Pink and The XX making the rounds, plus an exclusive Radio 1 Maida Vale session planned on the Gilles Peterson show very soon, it’s official, “Mount Kimbie are here” (RA).
