Kimyan Law - Coeur Calm [forthcoming on Blu Mar Ten Music]

Just 19 years old, Kimyan Law (real name Nico Mpunga), belongs to the African Diaspora. The son of a Congolese father and Austrian mother, Mpunga resides in Vienna, unable until recently to return to his homeland due to the devastating Congolese Civil War.

Born on Christmas Day 1994, Mpunga was a melancholic child. A lone black youth studying in all-white environments he was a victim of racism; a difficult and depressing atmosphere which led him to find respite and consolation in music. Making recordings using instruments improvised from trash he soon graduated from using wood, glass and his own voice to a mastery of drums, piano, marimba and flute, channeling his childhood difficulties into creation.

At the age of 12 Mpunga started exploring the possibilities of electronic music, experimenting with primitive looping on a PSP and then pursuing audio-engineering courses, learning so fast he rapidly started tutoring others. The last couple of years have seen Kimyan Law blossom into the artist we see before us today. Deep explorations into his African roots have led him to create complex mosaics of ancient sound with modern aesthetics. A true ‘artist’ rather than the all-too-common ‘engineer’ found in modern electronica, Mpunga constantly talks of the meaning and imagery in his music, referring to his tracks as ‘portraits’.
It will come as no surprise that Mpunga’s highly visual sensibilities do not stop at sound. He is also a painter, graphic designer and video director. A true polymath, a genuine prodigy.

Kimyan Law’s music is a thing of rare beauty. Having its roots in Drum & Bass it flies far beyond the confines of that often-formulaic genre, expanding sonic ranges and disrupting standard arrangements. Mpunga incorporates African instruments and influences into his high-tech set up, achieving a rare organic and human quality amongst the cold electronics. Glittering cascades of tuned percussion are expertly weaved into layers of state-of-the-art bass and the result is a stunning array of romantic and cinematic music that, with its sheer humanity, seduces everyone who experiences it.

Vaccine - Decryption EP | Auxiliary

Vaccine returns to Auxiliary with a digital only offering for our Transmissions series. Four tracks here from the depths of the Vaccine vaults, sitting mainly around the 140 bpm mark. These tracks are actually from a few years back, when Vaccine was working with the likes of Nonplus and Hotflush. First up is the EP's title track, Decryption. Super high tech percussion and strange sounds trigger off huge bass and stark eerie manipulated vocals. Dark science. Bad Habit goes a little lighter and introduces a vocal to stunning effect. Nurse drops the tempo to 85bpm and keeps the bass heavy. Fans of the Autonomic podcast may remember this one. Finally, Electrolyte (Decryption Part 2) is the light to Decryption's darkness - an alter-ego of sorts. Stunning stuff from start to finish. Get it HERE.

AI - FABRICLIVE Promo Mix (October 2014)

They are a stalwart name in the drum & bass scene. As producers, Artificial Intelligence (also widely known as AI),share a similar lightness of touch and a well defined ear for arrangements that veer long in the more musical end of the spectrum (as their latest promotional mix here displays). The duo also continue to serve up cuts and remixes that grab attention in all the right places earning plaudits from BBC Radio 1's d&b impresario, Friction. New tracks abound, do take a listen.
