- Carbonated by Mount Kimbie
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 15 July 2011
Before the twin James(ies) of Blake and Woon came along and ruined the scene Mount Kimbie were kings of the post dubstep chill out genre. Their debut album 'Crookes and Lovers' is one of those indulgent summer records with tight beats and luxurious loving melodies that I can't recommend strongly enough. This double 12" features the excellent 'Carbonated' from the album along with two new tracks and three remixes. 'Carbonated' itself flows along beautifully with staccato beats, gentle Rhodes piano and cut up soul vocals. Like Burial relaxing by a fountain in a park on a sunny day. On the flip 'Flux' belts along with a sped up garagey feels and squeaks galore rising through the debris. Of the remixes Klaus provides a nice minimalist techno like effort, Peter Van Hoesen is full on watery, bleepy techno with fat bassline, whilst Airhead cut the thing into smithereens, reinventing the chords and focusing on pitch shifted vocals. The addition of a rock guitar to this mix is weird and misplaced. Finally, we get an original named 'Dave's Chords' which consists of skittering beats, high pitched vocals and lovely wobbly Rhodes piano. A great (if brief) track and not some kind of leftover as you might imagine. It's a shame the remixes don't really do justice to the original versions but this is a worthy addition to the canon and a useful reminder of a great album.
