Straight out the S-bend underbelly of club land, Sydney, Australia comes “SYSTEM BREAKDOWN” and “WET ‘N’ WILD” by KIM.
KIM (Or Kimberley Isaac Moyes as his mother calls him) is erstwhile producer/drummer/programmer and one half of THE PRESETS, Australia’s foremost proponents of dashing pop/dance (non) sense and (not so) sensibility.
With his KIM hat on, Kimberley mans the wheel and heads for synthetic, sexed-up electro city. While music from THE PRESETS could incite a riot, these tracks from KIM – a stripped back mix of bleeps, beats, arpeggiated chords and cascading synths – all point straight toward the dancefloor.
This clean hit of pure electro action stands out as unique in Australia’s (still) mash-up obsessed/anything-goes dance circles. That’s not to say KIM hasn’t been in good company. Tracks have already been included on Bang Gang’s Ministry of Sound Mashed Two and Club Kooky compilations and have become instant mainstays in many an Australian DJ box. Modular label mates CUT COPY cherry picked KIM to be the first 12″ released on their UK imprint Cutters. To know KIM is to love KIM – get acquainted.
