DESCRIPTION

American producer FBK returns to Rekids with his debut album entitled ‘More
Stories From The Future’.

Long-term house and techno heavyweight, Kevin M. Kennedy aka FBK has a
career spanning three decades. Debuting with a seminal release on Frictional in
’97, Kennedy went on to appear on labels like diametric. and Urban Kickz, whilst
more recent releases have landed on Barba Records, Suspected (alongside Paul
Mac) and Rekids - kick-starting the label’s Special Projects series. With a close
bond to Detroit greats like Anthony ‘Shake’ Shakir, Daniel Bell, Claude Young,
Keith Tucker and Sherard Ingram (DJ Stingray), FBK is considered a true
contemporary. Returning to Rekids for his inaugural long player, ‘More Stories
From The Future’ demonstrates his versatility within the studio and mirrors his
genre-bending approach to performing, both as a DJ and live act.

‘Modular Life’ brings deep resonating lows, liquid pads and clinical percussion,
before the psychedelic vocals of ‘I’ll Sit Back, You’ll Jack’ join smashing snares
and intensifying synths. Exhibiting erratic sound design, ‘Layers of Fear’ comes
complete with pumping drums and intense hi-hats, until ‘Hassling’ offers a
stepping groove, thick pad stabs and deep sub movement. ‘Headless’ gets
modular heavy with bubbling effects and shuffling rhythm, preceding the driving
kicks of ‘Gate Closing’ where ghostly vocals meet enveloping acid growls. ‘The
Boxing Lesson’ delivers punchy kicks and steppy snares under lofty atmospherics,
ending on ‘The Finisher’s Heart’ where evolving detuned synths flow over powerful
percussion.
