V/A – Inkosi
12th Isle’s first various compilation errs on the edges of unbalanced dance music, but misted and twisted enough for home listening too. Nikolaienko’s “April Echo” paddles about like the alien utterances of small jazzy beings stuck in the car radio; Grim Lusk provides a slate of cold rain minimal dubtempo in “The Man Is Out.”
Cru Servers get emotional with bare, cave-dwelling techno in “Henge Salt Phrasal” and Robert Bergman warms waterlogged feet with a trippy, dubby house track “I Dream About You (Almost Every Night).” The final piece really lifts off into piano stabbed UK funky oddness dubbed “Koppa D” from Luar Domatrix. The parties must be batsh*t in Glasgow!!
