K15 Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
North London groovenik K15 follows up releases on the labels including Wild Oats and No Room For Air with a new EP for Eglo. Sunbeams is replete with the sort of jazz-flecked groove music that Floating Points has a lot to answer for, let alone be allowed to keep pedalling via his label. Rather than follow the well trodden house-meets-Herbie path of many of his peers, K15 chooses to lean on 2-step (‘Sunbeams’), garage (‘Starburst 3’) and juke (‘Esencia’).
Two very different tracks populate this 12” on Lo Recordings, each excelling in its own sound world. On the A we have a woozy, percussive drive through softly paranoid atmospheres with deliciously classic hand claps keeping pace; the B side provides a deeper, more introspective contrast that shuffles quietly along a deserted sonic plane.
Released on the Wild Oats label, London artist K15 returns to the dance floor with a new debut 5-track EP ‘Insecuritues’. Having been part of London’s music scene for a while, he remains a relatively unsung hero and a master of distinctively combining genres. ‘Insecurities’ features sampled dancefloor classics, alongside re-works and original music.
The flipside of the Wild Oats coin, the brand new No Room For Air label focusses on soulful 7” releases. Sexy, smokey and oozing with groove, Mist is an exquisitely laidback piece from K15. Perfect for fans of dubby lounge moods. Sit back and let it set the tone. Out on 7” from No Room For Air.
