Whether it’s the delicately fingered piano motif of title track ‘Phantom Record’ or the grime-synth-strings meets naked-digital-kit hip-hop break of ‘Cognitive X’ this new EP from Orion X Kazumi should be going straight in your weekend playlist.
Four tracks in total, opening with ‘The Fourth World’, another exploration in leisurely piano work, propped up by a healthy dose of Dilla / Riggins drum loops. Closing track ‘IJUI Tree’ is more reflective. The bass takes a more leading role this time, smoothly walking its way around in 8 bar loops over the glides of the aqueous keys and loose beats, with their single mic set up feel.
