4D&Krunky – HMND001
Written by Toby Taylor on 25th November 2020
Exciting new imprint (and friends of the station!) Humanoid enters the fold with a debut from UK-based label co-owners 4D&Krunky.
After a year of gaining recognition across the UK and beyond as a collective that pushes forward-thinking electronic music as well as showcasing the finest unforgotten and unknown gems from the past – this impressive first outing from the duo shows off some of their varied influences, from the earliest tech-house sounds to breakbeat, electro and beyond.
The A-side serves up two heavyweight slices, with the dancefloor-ready rolling bass and old-school synths of ‘Opelescot’ followed up by the heavy breakbeats, stabs and atmosphere of ‘Swim with the Tide’.
The B-side shows a different side to the pair’s productions, ‘Stunt Bubble’ rolling along with uplifting arpeggio lines and fun-loving leads supported by a weighty baseline before ‘Seasaw’ finishes out the EP joyfully with it’s sun-washed nostalgia and playful elements.
All in all this is an exciting debut from the collective and we here at Melodic Distraction can’t wait to see what the future holds for the label!
