Wicked gqom mutations from Tokyo’s MPC finger-drummer KΣITO, reinforced by Tolouse Low Trax and Kӣr remixes

After turning his hand to juke, KΣITO follows a run of gqom-inspired releases onto A’dam’s Knekelhuis, hammering out martial percussive trills and tense, stately strings inspired by the SA style in four parts. The results feel to loosen up gqom’s rigidity with his subtly offgrid patterning, at best in the flowing flourishes of ‘Kannon Yu’ and skewed with an Far eastern accent on the title tune, while ‘Ao Zora’ is the recalls the Indonesian rhythmelodies of Uwalmssa and co. Serbia’s Kӣr applies his signature rhythmic intricacies on a remix on ‘6th Street’ at a slower tempo that Tolouse Low Trax also holds to on his buoyant, reduced rework of ‘Kannon Yu.’
