Scottish collective and label Meld will end the year with a new remix EP, titled ‘Carnyx’, featuring reworks of its 2021 releases.
Liverpool-born, Aberdeen-based producer KAVARI released the five-track ‘if the benign was to ever be so pure’ EP back in May. An exhilarating fusion of warped electronic sound design and propulsive club energy, the release was a striking introduction to the producer, from the woozy ambient clouds of ‘aya garden ***’ and ‘yearn’ to the broken techno beats and ice cold synths of ‘essence remains’ and ‘glass comb’.
Upon the EP’s initial release, we premiered ‘skee feat. klahrk’, a track we described as sounding like a mirrorball shattering in slow motion: an explosion of breakbeats, accented by sharp bursts of light and glimmering colour. Below, you can now hear Jennifer Walton’s shapeshifting remix of the track.
‘Carnyx’ will be released as a Beatport exclusive on 31st December, and will be available everywhere else from 14th January. Pre-order it here.
