about

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.

'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
