Kalawila – Slagsml Utbrt P Mount Everest EP – 12″ (MOUNTAIN_001)
With focus battling between murderous bass and bewildering soundscapes throughout the EP, the choice of three energies and tones makes Kalawila’s debut a surely applicable dance floor tool for techno and house devotees alike.
Stockholm/Berlin-based Kalawila debuts on his own imprint, Mountain Explosion Device, with an EP made for warehouses.’Slagsmål utbröt på Mount Everest EP’ is an ensemble of three dark house tracks on the verge of techno, each sonically similar and yet delicately versatile in function.
‘Slagsmål utbröt på Mount Everest’ is a forward-leaning and fast paced roller with long build-up. Meanwhile ‘Khajuraho’ is steadily reclined on cooler percussion and kindred warehouse bass-sounds. ‘Pluto får sparken’ then shifts focus slightly to the peripheries in a deeper passage of harmonics and reverberations.
