With operations split between Copenhagen and Berlin, Twin Cities laid down a marker with a series of events graced by names like DJ Sotofett, SVN, Jamie Tiller, Gilb’r and PLO Man. Booking some of the finest electronic music’s leftfield has to offer, those parties have since spawned a record label and the first offering from Twin Cities’ own Kasper Marott (under his Tandoori alias) certainly lived up to expectations.
Furnished with undulating electronics and intricate drum patterns, the tribal elements on last year’s World Tour 1 EP border on exotica, and equipped with rainforest FX, the label’s sophomore release finds itself under the same sonic umbrella. A 15-minute opus layering 303s, massaging pads and swinging drum patterns into a heady collage, title track ‘Drømmen om Ø’ evolves from leisurely stroll beneath sun-dappled flora into an acid-fuelled trek, hacking the way through an overgrown jungle trail, machete in hand.
Drømmen om Ø is out now on Twin Cities – buy it direct from the label.
