Lowkey is a France based talent with associations to labels like Afu Lab and Neverending whilst Kardinal is another essential French talent. Over the last ten years he has gotten support for his dark techno on labels like Goog and Afu Lab from tastemakers including Umek and Phil Kieran.
Together the first track the pair serves up is Scaramouche, a sweeping techno affair with slick, frictionless percussive loops, deep tunnel atmospherics and whispery, shadowy female voices. Its high-octane stuff that sweeps you off your feet and never sets you down.
Scolopendra is heavier and harder hitting. Awash with sweeping pads and miniature breaking waves, it surges along a desolate industrial landscape as various distant moans and groans imbue things with a sense of uneasy paranoia.
Alex Di Stefano, the boss of Binary404 and a producer for labels like Sabotage and 1605 Music Therapy, reimagines the track as something a little more kinked and physical. It groans with industrial menace but is smooth and silky at the same time.
This is another fierce release from the !Organism label that continues to see them define the techno zeitgeist.
