KIN 004 is a featured release on Stylus this week:

- The echolocation hand-percussion and ghostly 80s digital keyboards sound like Nelly Furtado’s “Maneater” if it couldn’t keep a meal down. Like all the best 2-step, the beat in(ter)ventions of “Can’t Wait” are like a summer’s day, but this is one where even at it’s hottest you can feel the tingle of electricity on your bare forearms, the warning of the sudden darkness of a coming lightning storm. “Never Happened” and “It’s Too Close” pitch up exultant female voices ‘til they’re plastic smooth—grainless—then balances them unsteadily on waves of bass; like the whole EP it’s vertiginous and exhilarating.

Reports are already coming back from the very few promos we've sent out so far, if you'd like a promo please email info@electrokin.com and tell us who you are.

- As invitingly improbable as the German Something J/DJ Maxximus's "Mercedes Bentley vs Versace Armani" as improbably inviting as The Soft Pink Truth's classic "Do You Party", both similar examples of orphaned electro-pfunk this EP deserves to be massive.

Johnny Dark - Can't Wait

KIN004 a new EP by Johnny Dark is currently being mastered, and should be in the shops sometime in June, you can here some audio clips here, and read some more about it here.

- Listen to the skittergun throb of Johnny's new EP and you're reminded of that glorious time not so long ago when Timbaland and 2-step ruled, and it was as if everything on the radio had caught a benign percussion virus, a communicable disease which transformed vocals as well as beats into an urgent rhythmic chatter.
