krankbrother – Tina’s Delights
After a stand out year that saw their ‘Recollective’ compilation celebrate five years as club promoters as well as a recent EP ‘One Eyed Jack’s’ for Classic Music Company, krankbrother have unveiled their latest project in the form of ‘Zipp’ – a two track EP scheduled for release on Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaur’s cross-platform imprint Nice Age on 14th December.
Zipp’s title track picks up where ‘One Eyed Jack’s’ left off, delivering a hefty dose of old school Italo-disco, awash with 80s-inspired synths and thumping basslines. ‘Tina’s Delight’ adds a darker edge to the EP, opening with an abrupt kick drum and warped vocal samples, before layer after layer of hypnotic, hazy loops give a clear nod to the duo’s visionary musical direction.
Highly reverred for their iconic parties, krankbrother have built a reputation for themselves as one of London’s most respected DJ duos. Consistently showcasing new talent, it’s no surprise that their production work has since become just as prominent, with ‘Zipp’ fittingly marking the first artist release on Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaur’s Nice Age label since its inception back in August. With a remix for ‘Zipp’ by Marc Houle also on the way, krankbrother are set to move into the new year as an act to watch throughout 2015.
