Living up to its name, 'Respirator' is heavier than an iron lung. Stripped back and steppy, the alluring dynamic builds around a hypnotic hook before a waspish bassline buzzes in from nowhere. Sprung with a heady, insistent riddim that slams with uncompromising muscle, Kelle's attention to detail and production craftsmanship are just as impossible to avoid as the physical, body-minded groove. 'Radiophobia' is equally distinctive. Charged with a penetrative two-step drum arrangement and another instantly hooky riff, there's a captivating sense of drama programmed into every element. Conjuring a masterful sense of groove theatrics, the breakdown strips the track back to a bare pad before all elements are triggered in unison for a high impact second drop. Peppered with naughty nuances and subtle twists, we guarantee you'll hear something new on every listen.
Two examples of drum & bass at its most stark, progressive and forward-thinking; two reasons why we reckon Kelle is on a one track mission to the D&B premier league.
