Defrostatica 03 review
This time it's our friend Kiat (Syndicate collective) from Singapore with three tunes that are impeccable in style and substance. From the soothing yet purposeful Brooklyn to the acute manifesto that is „Procession“ and the final but cathartic „Slider“ this EP offers a unique perspective on drum and bass music. The 160 bpm Five Boroughs Remix by Kabuki (V Rec.) is reflecting exactly the aesthetics of his regular night in Berlin called "New Forms" which he runs in collaboration with no other than D:Bridge. The title "Leipzig EP" reflects on the special relationship between the label owner’s (Booga) homebase in Germany with Kiat. It goes back to 2007 and kicked off with an interesting story involving dubplates and people still meeting on AIM.
