Support from Will LV, Kidkanevil, Om Unit, Electronic Explorations, Sinistarr, DJ Shadow.
Across its five club friendly tracks, Krakatoa explores various
rhythmic and melodic potentials that have recently been popular
in strands of dance music and which were once hinted at by the
scratch beats popular in the turntablist scene of the early 00s.
This is music to dance to, get loose to and perhaps most
importantly not take yourself too seriously to.
Guests on the EP include Chicago scratch legend Toadstyle, who
delivers cuts on Million Dollar Lady (also available as an
instrumental), Lorn cohort Dolor, whose vocals turn Powerchild into
futuristic powerpop and two remixes from Astrophonica’s Dawn Day
Night, who remolds Million Dollar Lady into a lean, eyes-down
dubstep dungeon roller, and Cosmic Bridge’s EAN (ex-Various
Production) who flips Powerchild into a ‘will it, won’t it’ hypnosis.
The EP was preceded by a single featuring Om Unit, D-Styles, Free the Robots and more cutting over one of the EP's unreleased beats. You can download the single here -> originalcultures.bandcamp.com/album/anuk-krakatau
