Boomkat Product Review:
Another highlight of Ascetic House’s newr batch, Der Kindestod expresses strains of darkroom sleaze, fractal trap soul, and gnarled digital n0!ze, alongside a rrattering bam remix by False Witness
‘Orion I Want You’ is the follow-up to Der Kindestod’s debut for Rabit Halcyon Veil in 2018. Since that release they also teamed with Rabit for a killer remix of House of Kenzo, making this their vital 2nd appearance on Ascetic House. It’s a proper pick ’n mix of styles, taking in a pensive, combustible techno trampler ‘Everything And Nothing’ and the absolute ecto-mode banger ‘A Little Bit’ from the top shelf of horny mid ‘90s house fantasies for a blistering start. But it starts to crumble around the edges into filthier mutations with the stumbling gabber noise of ‘OYFN’, and some deeply weird fractal soul jam in ‘By Your Side’, with Berlin’s False Witness taking it back to the ‘floor via a slamming techno remix.
