On this Mini EP entitled SPEICHER 93, Kolsch produces two cutting edge German House Tracks. Out ot the two KIR is my favourite.
The traditional driving kickdrum may start the track but instantly adds something new with the sudden pitch change, turning the Kick into both the melody as well as the driving force iconic of the Genre.
This slight twist on the tradition continues throughout the track and works incredibly well as the synth line swells and morphs between aggressive and wispy. Then we get hit the 2:50 mark and a traditional breakdown is replaced with an awkwardly jaunty staccato variation of the synth melody before we come back to the main arrangement backed up by an incredible driving deep bass part that elevates the track to a new level.
It’s the mix of the traditional and the fresh from a producer clearly experienced in techniques iconic of the genre which escalate this track above a lot of modern house music and make it to my track of the week:
