British DJ and producer duo Mount Kimbie began releasing music in 2009, and are renowned for shaping the post-dubstep era. Their success derives from productions delving into a range of genres such as minimal, indie, electronica and hip-hop. Up until their album Love What Survives, they hadn’t embraced much in the club sphere, and their indie electronic sensibility was represented in the form of a band – but their new album Love What demonstrates how they’ve branched out, featuring old-skool drum patterns and vocals by hip-hip icon King Krule and electronic pop sensation James Blake, to name a few.
But the collaborations don’t stop there for Mount Kimbie, as news has appeared that Techno queen Nina Kraviz, amongst other electronic artists, have remixed tracks from last years Love What Survives album - producing two EPs Love What Survives - Remixes Part 1 and Part 2. Part one remixed by Kraviz is out on May 4th featuring three spin-offs of “Blue Train”. Part two follows one week later, featuring a remix by none other than techno king Marcel Dettmann.
