Boomkat Product Review:
Dub Kult aka Neilon Pitamber from london had his debut record out on warp's short-lived sub-label arcola, and was pounced on by the likes of ricardo villalobos, andrew weatherall, sven väth, et al. Having been a dj since the mid-nineties, focussing on style, keeping it quiet and nice, the Kult have been receiving mucho recognition lately for his brilliant Raum music releases. Dub Kult combines house and techno, edgy but playful and deep tech house. This contrast is displayed with panache on his debut ep for traum, with the rocking a-side "twelve“ and the Herbert flavours of “Chick“, sat all comfy alongside the more electronic inflections of “slipping away“. “Twelve“ itself contrasts hard beats with sweet bells that create a nice break in this track, whereas “chick“ absorbs various influences to create a multi cultural flavour, based on a good old 4 to the floor, ranging from dub to house to techno taking in jazz and micro sounds en route. “Slipping away“ is a nice slow beat track that works more on experimental sounds, using plenty modifications and modern sound design. A surefire follow up to his massive “On and on” from 2005.
