Mount Kimbie has just released their long awaited and much hyped debut on the great Hot Flush Recordings. These guys are fringe dubsteppers I suppose. They sort of remind me of Gold Panda in the sense that they are experimental, yet maintain a sense of accessibility to what they do. 'Field' is all beats until it melts into some super cut up guitar work. This is one of those songs that rewards repeated listens, as most MK work does. 'Maybes' comes from an earlier single and works in the opposite direction, it starts with fragmented samples and instruments and then drops a beat to settle the whole thing down. I'd spend a little time with this material Mount Kimbie have potential to do big things, not just now, but for years to come.
