Liverpool’s Kalax delivers blood-curdling electronica from a harrowing future.
‘Let’s adore and endure each other.‘
It seems a fitting modus operandi adopted by Liverpool producer Kalax. Reflective, glacial towers of synthetic sheen collide with steel bauble beats so metallic you can see your face in them. Hypnotic and compulsive yet unsettling and threaded with menace.
There is a flipside, though. His are aural pleasures dense and industrial but with enough refracted colour to offer some light to the shade recalling the architectural retro-futurism of John Carpenter or more recently Majeure, Moholy Nagy and Tycho.
Disco to played loud and at night, when you can’t see the blood on the dancefloor.
