Mount Kimbie just keep evolving; they can’t do anything else. First they were young stars of the London electronic underground, turning the breakout success of a pair of EPs into a lasting album statement, 2010’s Crooks & Lovers. Later they were Warp-signed shapeshifters, changing coordinates across a pair of albums, between electronic duo and band, and between a rich constellation of influences. At each moment they could have stuck with a formula they knew worked. Instead they explored and experimented, looking for the next spark of inspiration and the freshest ideas.

13 years on, the search has brought them somewhere new. Over the past half decade the pair have taken parallel paths: Kai Campos dove deep into avant-garde club and DJ culture, while Dom Maker has been collaborating with world-renowned vocalists in the fertile LA scene. Coming back together for this exciting new chapter for the duo, they offer new insight into the two sides of their sound in an engrossing yin-and-yang exercise that infuses Mount Kimbie with a vivid new palette of sounds and influences, setting the stage for their future collaborations.
