Over the past couple of years, Kellerkinds unique interpretation of house music has truly catapulted him out of the figurative basement and into the limelight. Whether it was the disco-infused cool of Backflash or the tribal rhythms found on his debut album Basement Story, through hard work, rather than by miracle, Marco Biagini matured into a producer who is at the top of his game.
With ‘Music is a Miracle’ Kellerkind now delivers a sophomore album that offers itself as a diverse and surprising love letter to music, carrying his distinct handwriting. This 12″ compiles two of the album’s highligts alongside three highcalibre remixes. ‘I Know’ is trademark Kellerkind, as he treats us to filtered disco breaks, colourful chords and a smooth vocal hook, while ‘Music is a Miracle’ presents a different style. Here, an extremely funky garage bass-line, Chicago strings and urgent trumpets surprise us as they drop after a Moodyman-esque monologue. Mantra-alert! The B-side is then dedicated to the remixes of ‘I Know’. While the British heavyweights Leftwing & Kody bring the heat thanks to energetic dub chords and an urgent acid bass-line on their tasteful interpretation, Oliver Koletzki surprises with a rave-tastic old-school UK hardcore mix.
