After the recent Touched Live event in Hastings, UK, it's clear that people care about two things - good music and good causes. This June we continue on our quest to bring you both with the help of Keiss, who generously gives us 'Tau Ceti' for our listening pleasure.
A frequent contributor, having appeared on two of our compilations and releasing 'The Breath' back in 2016, Keiss deviates slightly from his previous form and applies his particular brand of soul-lifting ambience to a release that delves heavily into the worlds of both Downtempo and Ambient Drum & Bass.
Just in time for the summer, perfect for all the sunny afternoons and evenings waiting for us in the coming months. And although ideal for seeing out the long but shortening days, I can easily see myself putting this on after a night out, there's a real AnotherLateNight vibe going on here.
Lovers of Burial will feel right at home with distant reverb-washed sounds and rolling beats, tracks effortlessly melding into each other from the pensive to the punchy. It's nice to see artists still paying attention to these genres in 2018, matching time-tested rhythms with the upgraded power of modern instrumentation.
As a bonus, three remixes from Karsten Pflum, Carbinax and Sobrio top off what's already a killer album, further cementing the tenet that great things happen when people work together.
With a digital release and a limited run of 50 CDs, all proceeds will be forwarded to Macmillan Cancer Support. Get yours to jump start the summer and heal your post-solstice blues.
