Mathias Kaden - Polyphonic EP [PETS068]

by Mathias Kaden



Pets are proud to welcome long-time friend Mathias Kaden whose making his label debut with two of the trippiest, sense-shaking, freakiest jams we think he’s ever conjured.

As teased in his recent Boiler Room show (and most sets he’s played lately), both ‘Polyphonic’ and ‘NoKick’ offer a fresh-yet-heritage-rooted take on techno and have been tailored to cut through on the biggest of festival and carnival rigs. Perfect timing, then. Let’s tuck in:

‘Polyphonic’ sits somewhere between Paperclip People and Basement Jaxx. Its sterling acid house hook lays down the foundations while a dizzying array of FX and sonic chemtrails swoop, bend and flare above the groove like fireworks. A proper sonic rocket display of a track that defies conventional arrangement, make no mistakes: this blows minds.

‘NoKick’ continues this theme with even more derring-do. As the name suggests, there’s no kick drum at play here, just a swinging break with a classic 2 Bad Mice style old school bassline and even more laser-blazing FX trickery that rifles the spectrum with head-turning, twisted dexterity. Complete with crowd cheers and carnivalian whoops and hollers, this is the ultimate DJ tool that winds the crowds up like nobody’s business.

Better late than never: After years of releasing on some of the biggest and most respected labels in techno, Mathias’s appearance on Pets has been long overdue. But rest assured; these tracks really are a seriously special occasion. Only a fool would sleep on these…
