D.K. – Mystic Warrior EP
Following up on the bewilderingly beautiful concept cassette album The Goddess is Dancing for Good Morning Tapes earlier this year, Paris-based talent D.K. gifts a similarly ritually-charged offering to Antinote in Mystic Warrior. An uptempo four-tracker with a slamming energy and an ethereal aura that will cut through to the deepest core of any steely DJ set. The opening title track marries resonant, striking percussion with layering melodic brightness and samples of artificial animal growl and chirp and call. “Elements” is a warm, playful and driving electro track that gives way to “Worries in the Dance” a thoughtful play on the title for the contemplative dancer, pairing crooning voices with echoing hand-claps. Finally, “Earth Dancer” builds itself from trilling flutes, pattering drums and refreshing chimes into a slower embrace, filling with feeling.
