with focus battling between murderous bass and bewildering soundscapes throughout the ep, the choice of three energies and tones makes kalawila s debut a surely applicable dance floor tool for techno and house devotees alike. stockholm/berlin-based kalawila debuts on his own imprint, mountain explosion device, with an ep made for warehouses. slagsmal utbröt pa mount everest ep’ is an ensemble of three dark house tracks on the verge of techno, each sonically similar and yet delicately versatile in function. slagsmål utbröt på mount everest is a forward-leaning and fast paced roller with long build-up. meanwhile khajuraho is steadily reclined on cooler percussion and kindred warehouse bass-sounds. pluto far sparken then shifts focus slightly to the peripheries in a deeper passage of harmonics and reverberations.
following his release on stockholm s bossmusik, kalawila s third release really makes mountains go boom! the strength in the second release on mountain explosion device is undoubtedly kalawila’s sense of rhythm, straight to the point, no bs grooves, that swarm to form total dj tools, plus a subtle atmosphere that will move this record from the shelves into the booths. clocked into a near 13 minutes journey, this monster a-side of a track feels like a celebration of everything that makes us gather during those late hours. paired with a sonic wall that resembles mid 90’s lust for experimentation, which marks the entire a side of kalawila’s second release on his label. on the flip you’ll find even further explorations into the same territory. rest assured that virunga’s less organic but more metallic approach will find a place in the hands of more daring dj’s and listeners. the final track is a remix from jana sleep: a long lost tale of hibernation that keeps most hypnotists on the edge for more. this is only the beginning!
