Boomkat Product Review:
CS + Kreme follow their incredible ’Snoopy’ for TTT with this epic 3-hour double-mixtape of myriad folk, ambient and deep techno - a joyous, spirited, heart-grabbing mix covering everything we wanna hear right now. But u already know it’s gonna be ridiculous…right?
If you don’t know by now, the Melbourne duo’s debut album ’Snoopy’ is a clear contender for AOTY 2020 - one of the most sublime, affective LPs we’ve heard in years - so their Reel Torque session is required listening for anyone seeking to learn more about the influences and tastes that make up the CS+Kreme microcosm.
They previously supplied their patrons at TTT with a mixtape in 2018, and this one doubles down on the length and vibes, taking an extended walkabout between Indonesian folk, lysergic techno visions, a face-freezing cover of Yazoo, Japanese tabla music, ambient dembow, seminal AI and totally otherworldly gems that will have keener heads scrambling for the IDs.
Take it on trust this one is a real no brainer, plotting escape routes into the life-affirming wilds of ancient and modern traditions in a way that allows for myriad voices to harmoniously coexist, and with a real knack for unpredictable but cogent turns of phrase that keep us rapt from start to finish.
