A couple of weeks ago, the kind Midwestern mosquitoes decided to give me the gift of West Nile. If you ever wanted to know what it feels like to have it, it’s kind of like being in a feverish hell. Luckily, my case was mild but it left me with a bad case of meningitis, a bed-ridden fever, and an inability to even eat Chipotle.
I KNOW, THE HORROR OF IT ALL.
After a somewhat speedy recovery, I heard that Kenton Slash Demon, the futuristic club duo from Denmark, released their latest song, “ORE.”
We open with a bass line over train-like synths. The initial buildup breaks into an almost Eastern European melody that makes you want to be traveling through a city. It definitely feels like a Kenton Slash Demon song even though it’s a different route than the duo has usually taken, like off “Matter” or “Daemon.” It’s noisier but fits well with their dark dance music. Old fans may feel it’s a step in a strange direction but, for me, this shows the versatility the pair have in production. “ORE” is definitely less of a banger than their other songs but it still holds its own very well against their previous releases. It’s absolutely stunning and it’s up for free download off their soundcloud (link is in the picture above).
For a couple of my other favorite KSD tracks as well as a reference point to older tunes, here’s “Matter” and “Daemon.”
