Boomkat Product Review:
Debut album of balmy, subtropical UK house and dreamy ambient electronica from K-Lone, following from a string of charms for Wisdom Teeth and Idle Hands over the past five years
Where K-Lone’s string of solo and split 12”s tenderly hugged the floor, his ‘Cape Cira’ album is detectably slanted toward domestic listening and springtime headphone mooches. It never really gets above a strolling mid-tempo pace, and sweetly keeps in its dreamy lane of sloshing dembow rhythms and slow UKBass tropes embedded in subtly rich atmospheric sound designs. It’s perhaps hard not to be seduced by its slinky charms as it gently furls into pure, womb-like ambience with the final track ‘Happened’. Who said dance music producers can’t make smart albums, and not just “trax”? Cos this album would prove them wrong.
