Following the widely praised ‘Eyes Closed in The Sun’ LP dropped in early September, Asymmetric label boss Inigo Kennedy is now putting out a sublime new 5-track EP titled ‘Abacus Frames‘ to be out this Friday, November 12th. The release features five previously unreleased tracks from the esteemed producer’s music vault, and has the likes of outstanding producers like Sven Väth, Len Faki, Surgeon and more… so it is worth it to have these non-traditional tunes in the collection. Stay tuned, full details below.
Pre order: Soon at Bandcamp
The already highly anticipated release follows on from the widely praised ‘Eyes Closed in The Sun’ LP which Kennedy dropped in early September. ‘Abacus Frames’ continues to shine a light on the renewed energy of Asymmetric, which has shone through since its rebirth this summer. The label, a haven to Kennedy’s most personal releases, and this latest offering remains true to this legacy, delving deep into the most mysterious recesses of his mind.
Opening with the title track, ‘Abacus Frames’ delivers off-beat, juxtaposed rhythms that dance playfully between the haunting melody. ‘Stepping Stones’ introduces Kennedy’s signature dense layering and driving hypnotism, instantly transporting us to a palpitating 5 am dance floor. The bewitching ‘Laterna Magic’ envelops the listener under a spell of enticing rhythms, alluring synths and rasping hi-hats intertwining throughout. ‘Pulse Train’ possesses a kinetic force, mercilessly driving forward, focused and unwavering. The EP closes with ‘Divide & Fall’, where an ominous atmosphere swathes heavy kick drums and spiralling minimal beats.
This latest, evocative offering from Kennedy continues to demonstrate his endless artistry, and with the return of Asymmetric being so enthusiastically welcomed across the industry, fans can expect to see more releases over the coming months.
