Juno Download featured Weeks LP by Kisk
Some five years after he co-founded the Apparel Tronic imprint, Kisk has finally found time to record a mini-album for the label – a seven-track set where each track is named after a different day of the week. Musically, it’s certainly more adventurous than his usual luscious and dreamy deep house, offering a wider variety of rhythms and sounds. After opening with the yearning deep house chords and skewed, experimental techno drums of ‘Saturday’, the Milanese producer drops some luscious deep techno/Detroit style deep house fusion (the Theo Parrish influenced ‘Sunday’), before getting all jazzy and up-tempo on ‘Monday’ and exploring the dustier side of techno on ‘Tuesday’. Elsewhere, ‘Wednesday’ is a trippy chunk of loppy techno queasiness, ‘Thursday ‘is a driving and breathless beast, and ‘Friday’ is a rubbery dance through hi-tech jazz territory.
