about

"Velvety keys and molasses drone ooze, ideas collapse and whispered vocals bubble and retreat Doppler-like" - No Fear of Pop

"These songs exist in the space between sleep and wake - where time bends and bubbles, divine murmurs fizz into the distance and technicoloured layers of synth and stutter beats collapse under their own weight" - The 405

"tape looping action that's soothing my stressed and weary mind quite beautifully" - Norman Records

KR02 is a split 12" of skewed electronica from Canterbury producer B£AMS and sonic traveller Tesla. Brimming with warm washes of drone, side A forms a persistently morphing cluster of stoned hip-hop, gospel and highlife. Densely layered percussion, drunk synth, lost voices and temporal distortion flit in and out of earshot, inducing a joyful lostness. Riding this sea of colourful wooz, B£AMS channels Madlib, Delmar Edmunds and Matthew Dear with stumbling ADHD enthusiasm.

Occupying a colder, unheimlich universe, side B reveals the first recordings from enigmatic British doctor Tesla. On this collection of songs, entitled “Lazer-AC”, he dredges sea caves for dense undulations of jazz-infused drone and marshals armies of static from somewhere above the clouds. Hypnotic mantras, eroded landscapes and encoded loops are run through analogue tape equipment, à la Matthew David or Leyland Kirby, as Tesla collates the muttered instructions for some gestalt machine. Astonishing.
