Boomkat Product Review:
Kandis has by now become something like a good old friend of the mighty karaoke kalk label, an integral part of its multi-coloured, huddled-up family. ‘Airflow’ is the long-awaited new album, a cinemascopic display of atmospheric development and attention to detail, drawing you into its intimate, insulated world. Being responsible for work under the Senking and Fumble monikers, Massel reserves a kind of humble fragility for his Kandis material that presents itself perfectly on the exquisite echo of ‘Viereinhalb’ - a sizzling sliver of glitched-up and caressed dubism that brings to mind Jan Jelinek on the fuzziest sunshine pills. ‘Airflow’ follows, swiftly taking posession of your senses with a computer chip response to the heart-dub of Rhythm and Sound, re-inventing the Basic Channel soundsystem into a glorious moment of dripping feelgood walking on blue air. Lush. The closing tinkle of ‘Change’ reduces deep keys into another Cologne reinterpretation of all things low-end, dense and moving, generating in the process a perfect soundtrack to all outdoor moonlight activities. Lovely.
