"… some Aphex Twin funhouse of psychedelic cactus and horror…"
Greetings, dear readers. I’ve been meaning to get around to another set of Discogkahvi articles, and lo and behold, here’s the next in the series, number 042, covering Kahvi release 042. I’m sure there’ll be a “greatest hits” release at some point, so those numbers may unsync at some point. Anyway, release 042 is the most outstanding “The Beginning EP”, authored by the helmsman of Kahvi Collective himself, 4T Thieves. Kahvi Collective describes it as “4t thieves is back with an ep in his usual style. a journey from chilled beats into dance, moving onto ambience and then finishing with a large and fast finish. all the tracks are previously unreleased apart from tidal blues, which is an extended version of an earlier hellven.org release. I think theres something for everybody in this massive release….” on the download page, and I agree with this, very much. Eclectic music all around.
This final track on the EP is a standout – it sounds just crazy.
Massive, distorted drums go east and west, while what can only be described as sub-woofer sumo takes north and south. Pulsating sensors at thirteen and twenty-seven. The track so far has a fun “bass test” element to it. That is, until 1:30, it shifts, with no niceties like clutches or warning lights, into some Aphex Twin fun house of psychedelic cactus and horror. Drums at 2:00, sinister and mighty carnival dissonance making us all coulrophobes. Run, kiddies. Survive until the 3:51 mark, where a shred of the original fun we had before this all went insane, takes the track out.
