On WAA Industry / Future Classic
Whilst Kenton Slash Demon’s discography has been relatively scant in the recent past, the quality of their production has always shone brightly, a kaleidoscope of moods and styles underpinned by distinctive organic and futuristic sounds.
The ‘Skydancer’ EP is Kenton Slash Demon’s first outing in three years and arrives in pristine form on the newly founded Copenhagen based label WAA Industry. WAA Industry is an audiovisual label collective run by Kenton Slash Demon as musical curators in partnership with their long time visual collaborator, The Emperor Of Antarctica.
‘Skydancer’ also represents a collaboration with the Australian label, Future Classic (home to Flume, Chet Faker and Charles Murdoch), who release the EP with WAA industry in an exclusive worldwide license.
There are no half measures where this Danish duo are concerned; ‘Skydancer’ is a 15 minute monolith structured in two parts. ‘Skydancer I’ captures the brooding propulsive sound of the Berlin underground with its industrial hats and sinister central bass line, whilst ‘Skydancer II’ erupts into a powerhouse of breakbeats and expansive flourishes of dark euphoria. It’s an evocative record that reflects twin affections for The Berghain and the UK rave scene, filtered through the Kenton Slash Demon lense.
