"To mark the debut release of the records division from krux, a large number of frequent collaborators hailing from social networks, close acquaintances and local artists have gathered up to put together this compilation featuring 47 compositions, ranging from original works, re-works of pre-existing tunes, remixes, collaborations and everything in between. There’s a fine line between thematic compilations and random collections of songs from multiple musicians, but this celebratory release from Kaer‘Uiks has already gained an identity, showcasing what’s to come for the label.
Boosting a multitude of genres from electric jolts of mechanical music, to post-modern Electro tunes with Techno influences, Abstract compositions layered with an array of dense glitches, to more melodic beat driven work, it’s wholesome to witness that an identity was kept through its extensive running time. Not one song feels out of place, partially because some of them are remixes and reworks of songs you’ve heard minutes before, giving an instant distinctiveness to the whole package. Each song feels like a complex but small molecule of a giant, always evolving functional amorphous body, where you can’t quite figure out what the last stage of its evolution will end up like. That’s where the thrill of digging through these art pieces resides: on rediscovering song after song something to enjoy, to find some detail you might have missed at first, whilst soaking in all the contributions from these crafters, which come from very different backgrounds and influences. Graciously coming together with genres, sensibilities and different approaches to sound manipulation, all these very different body parts come together to assemble a fully-grown functional organism.
Whichever body piece you might enjoy the most from this creature, even if it’s just one small molecule, there’s certainly something inside to suit your sonic needs and arouse your curiosity for what’s to come next."
