amazing minimalism grooves! kayf is very pleased to publish its first ever vinyl release. this very special 3 track ep is produced by the labels founder artur nikolaev. the a-side track, sex under the sun, takes us on a sensual sojourn building from basic, elementary acid stabs and fractured beats that gradually fire up into a punchy, funked-up dance floor stomper. break showcases nikolaevs infectious production style, with complex broken beat patterns licking and stabbing through an uplifting, tropical baseline. completing the b-side coupling, sex under the moon is forged from similar production style as with the first two tracks, but is more intimate and increases both in intensity and tension, prolonging a climactic build-up which really hits the spot.

dj koze might be one of the worlds best producers, but above all hes a dj, and it’s his dj ear that governs. just as in a great set, so with his releases: seeing aliens came out of nowhere, a big buzzing beast of a track, to announce that koze was back on the scene and prime everyone for the coming album, knock knock. but now that koze has your attention, it’s time to remind everyone what’s most important about club music, pull things back, take a turn to the left, and get deep into the groove. thus pick up: the second single from knock knock is 100% pure groove, doubly so in the extended 12inch version. in a sense its incredibly familiar it is essentially a filter disco record, very close to something you could imagine coming out of paris around the turn of the millennium. but of course, this is koze. nothing is normal or familiar in his world, and hes taken this most foundational of clubland staples into new territory
