Ahead of dates in Manchester and London this week, we’re excited to bring you an exclusive five track playlist by underground electronic duo, KLLO.
Melbourne duo KLLO’s much anticipated new EP, Well Worn, came out back in August. In the 3 months since then, it has amassed over 10 million Spotify plays and established the band as one of the most exciting new electronic prospects of 2016 and only last week, the band shared Lone’s rework of Bolide, the lead single from the EP.
KLLO are cousins, Lam and Kaul, who, guided by the ghosts of UK garage and like-minded strains of underground dance music, performed sold out shows and festival slots in Australia, and overseas at The Great Escape and Barcelona’s Primavera Sound over the summer. In advance of their UK dates this week (with D/R/U/G/S in Manchester and at [PIAS] Nites in London, we are really excited to share this emerging duos Electronic Playlist put together exclusively for us at Flux.
Listen to Lone’s remix of KLLO’s Bolide here. KLLO are playing with D/R/U/G/S in Mancheser on 31 October and at [PIAS] Nites with Vessels and Groves in London’s Omeara on 3 November.
KLLO’s 5 track ‘electronic’ playlist
Lana Del Rey ‘Ride’ (Special Request Remix)
Picked this one up on our last trip to London at Phonica. One of those records that you fall in love with on first listen. Always loved his use of jungle breaks, how he uses them in a modern context and doesn’t make it sound like a 90s revival track. This has also got us obsessed with hoover bass, the note choice is actually really pretty and harmonically rich.
Nathan Melja ‘If You Can Dance Then Rave On It’
A talented young producer from Paris who we play regularly in our DJ sets. This lo-fi techno track is exceptional, just as much as everything else he’s ever released.
Avalon Emerson ‘Glider Gun’
San Francisco’s rising techno star. Would love to see her live one day soon.
Jacques Greene ‘Afterglow’
Jacques is one of our greatest inspirations. He’s an expert when it comes to vocal sampling, using them tastefully to create melodies and build sections that keep a track interesting enough without a lead vocal.
Pangea ‘Bulb In Zinc’
The latest record from Hessle Audio’s Pangaea see’s take on a more techno direction with a Kevin McAuley to the Dubstep influences of his earlier works. Melodic rhythm is key within Bulb in Zinc as is will all of his works, but string pluck-like synths bring a new playfulness to his existing palette.
