Kenton Slash Demon
En 2010, le duo danois Kenton Slash Demon nous surprenait avec l’EP Sun. Aujourd’hui le tandem est de retour et compte bien continuer sur ce ton avec l’annonce d’un nouveau maxi nommé Skydancer en mai dernier en format vinyle sur le label australien Future Classic. Ambiance techno sombre et bassline angoissante pour un résultat aussi entêtant qu’entrainant.
Leur nouvel EP Harpe/ Skyo sortira en septembre 2015.
Kenton Slash Demon, the duo of Silas Moldenhawer and Jonas Kenton have signed to Future Classic – the Australian independent label and home to Flume, Chet Faker, Flight Facilities and Jagwar Ma – for their forthcoming AA-side 12” Harpe/Syko out September 18th. This follows the recent underground hit Skydancer 12”.
Moldenhawer and Kenton, both children of the early 80 ́s, grew up alongside each other in Copenhagen. In their teenage years they discovered electronic music and were inspired to start spinning records and producing tracks together. Years later they formed the indie-electro outfit, When Saints Go Machine, whose music won them commercial success and a wide range of awards in their home country, especially as “Producers Of The Year” for their international debut album Konkylie, that peaked at #45 on Billboard’s “Uncharted / Next Big Sound” list in America.
During work on the When Saints Go Machine debut, Kenton Slash Demon released their critically acclaimed Khattabi EP on Tartelet Records. A steady succession of high quality EPs followed on the Danish label: Sun EP (2010), Matter EP (2010), Daemon EP (2011) and the “Ore” single (2012), garnering the duo widespread recognition and praise from critics and peers alike. Fans over the years include DJ Koze, Dixon, Claude Von Stroke, Brodinski, Luciano, Hot Chip, John Talabot, Gold Panda and Michael Mayer.
Kenton Slash Demon’s sound is both organic and futuristic, and their obvious skills take their productions further than the typical frame and dramaturgy of a club track. They want to create soundtracks for clubs as well as music that you can listen to on your home stereo, thus blurring the space between the public and private experience.
