Review: Mount Kimbie – Crooks & Lovers
October 17, 2010 § Leave a comment
Well, here it is ladies and gentleman: the debut Mount Kimbie LP. Released on Scuba’s increasingly influential Hotflush imprint, which was responsible for Joy Orbison’s ubiquitous 2009 anthem “Hyph Mngo” and the groundbreaking Triangulation album from the label chief, Crooks & Lovers is an aural delight from start to finish. Both Dom and Kai have been at pains to insist their sound is not dubstep per se – and although this is true, it’s equally apparent that they wouldn’t exist in their current form without having the genre as a base from which to explore their own sonic territory.
