Rough and ready club pressure from Null + Void new kid on the block Kilig
For fans of leftfield electronics and quirky electro, null+void is an imprint that has consistently whet the appetite with its bountiful supply of beats. Each release is distinct, bringing new flavours and moods to the airwaves; from James Shinra’s essential energetic Ball and Chain EP to the heftier frequencies of Dead Sound’s This Is Human EP, the label’s quality remains consistent amongst the shape-shifting disposition of every new offering. The latest four-tracker on Kirsti’s label continues to champion synonymously first-rate sonics whilst exploring new stylistic territories in dependable fashion.
Just as the artist’s name suggests, Kilig’s Cry EP explores the emotive end of the electronic spectrum, evoking deep and heartfelt reaction through intricate yet simple programming. The producer’s clean-cut composition strikes a chord with searching synth lines, resonant percussion and poignant timing, demonstrating a clear ear for soulful sonics. Across the four tracks, the producer uses contrast and interesting samples to great effect, hiding the dancey elements of the release behind touching tonal expression. For a newcomer, this is a seriously impressive effort.
