Just as I was about to feature the marvelous Neon Jung remix from the all new Kelpe release, a track I had the pleasure of hearing for a while now, XLR8R premiered this video for the tune. Like the previous live at home clips, this was filmed by Kel himself using his GoPro while travelling the world (I think I spotted Mr Beatnick for a second.)
The track is taken from the Bags of Time EP which came out earlier this week on Svetlana Industries.
October 6, 2012 To promote the new EP, Kelpe has done a guestmix for Solid Steel Radio!
Released in the first half of 2011, the b-side on Neon Jung‘s 10-inch on Magic Wire is a track that deserves a late mention here. Ten years ago, tracks like this weren’t that unusual and were coined broken techno. This hybrid of techno and broken beat (as if that wasn’t a hybrid of everything already) was put on the map by almost forgotten names like Nu Era, Titonton or Seiji’s Opaque moniker.
If you missed the Neon Jung’s record the first time, you can still get physical copies from Piccadilly or HHV. Digital releases can be found on Bleep or Boomkat.
For more music like this, I strongly recommend 2002’s Soul in Motion compilation.
