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.
