after his initial release on world unknown records way back in 2011 - a tunethat featured on andrew weatherall s ministry of sound masterpiece 2012 compilation - kalidasa has also released music via magic feet and tusk wax. this latest release sees him ploughing along a similar musical line. the mirage and sun aki are both tracks for those who like to chug-along to the more refined, no frills tunes that do exactly what they say on the tin. both are perfect spaced out and otherworldly grooves for strobe filled and lazer infused dark basements. soft rocks throw around some magical dust on the flip for their sun goes up, sun goes down remix which sees them turn the mirage into a 9 minute time lapse venturing from an early morning ambient start through to a pulsating electronic drive through the stars.
former world unknown and magic feet contributor kalidasa steps up for duty on the tusk wax label. usual rules apply: strictly limited 180g 12 inch vinyl, hand stamped, individually numbered, no digital. kalidasa reveals himself to be on a par with president of chug prins thomas across the four sprawling slabs of psychedelic electronic disco here. hard to choose one track over another but the >spectrum of love mix< of molly cules really hits the spot.
the third release on the world unknown label is a very meaty affair that coincides with the second birthday of the club night in brixton. on side w timothy j. fairplay fuses ancient egypt with late 80s belgium and drops it slap bang into the near future with the monolithic techno beast that is >cleopatra loves the acid<. its already been played in discos and on the bbc by andrew weatherall, for whom tim handles engineering and co-production duties in his day job, and is set to become a pounding anthem on the more adventurous dancefloors over the coming months. side u is a more throbbing psychedelic affair. kalidasa is the production alter-ego of tim rivers who runs the always excellent theacidhouse.com website. it<s exactly the kind of heavyweight midtempo tune that causes sweaty pandemonium at world unknown. if the word balearic still meant now what it did to from 87-92 then thats precisely what youd call this, most likely with the prefix >heavy<. but it doesnt so you cant, or can you?
various lurkers includes 4 mega tracks beamed down from brighton, leeds & sweden featuring kalidasa, zmatsutsi, tony pineman & tross. wicked collection of krautrock inspired chuggers, dubbed out disco and weirdo balearic beats. must have for fans of music from memory, invisible inc, optimo etc
