The London-based duo mix up influences and fresh material on this week’s podcast. Bursting onto the scene with their Maybes EP at the start of 2009, Mount Kimbie, the duo of Dominic Maker and Kai Campos, quickly impressed heads with their idiosyncratic takes on micro-garage, wistful downtempo techno and loping, twee dubstep. Their willingness to subvert such a multitude of genres gives them a sound unlike any other, skewing typical song structures but with a keen sense of melody.
London artist Blue Daisy is in the mix for Symbiosis Episode 46 with his “Your Favorite Nightmare” mix. Blue Daisy is the alter ego of Kwesi Darko and his music is truly unique bringing in filmic soundscapes, bass heavy rhythms and floating highs. He has been lumped in with the dubstep scene and compared to Flying Lotus but neither comparison do him justice. He is truly one of a kind.
