Dense & Pika’s Kneaded Pains imprint has been a ‘tour de force’ of late, releasing a consistent stream of top notch techno and electronica from artists like Egbert, Mat Playford, Eats Everything, C harlotte de Whitte, Robots With No Soul, Elisa Bee, Martin Books and many more.
The duo have been busy of late, readying their full length album for BMG and dropping a couple of singles as a precursor, including a collaboration with Leftfield. The ‘Neon’ single comes on their own imprint, pulling together two box fresh cuts in their own inimitable fashion.
Charging and thunderous beats are coupled with bright rave piano stabs and cut up vox on ‘Neon’, whilst ‘Gout’ takes a decidedly darker route, nonetheless just as funky, as mangled tones and vocals are injected into a tight and dominant rhythm.
