Kbot’s latest release “Order and chaos” presents a hugely varied arena of instrumentation. The sound is big, leaning partly towards the distorted world of electro house, and partly towards the more electronic-influenced edge of creative audio. The single portrays each moment really well, taking full advantage of the benefits of structural exploration in music, moving confidently from the big moments to the gentler, more electronic riff-oriented ones.
Kbot is from San Francisco, USA and he loves to make dark electronic hard-hitting songs. His music has a dark blend of raw energy and each song is a narration of the story of a robot called Kbot. Kbot is an ancient bot who woke up to the new world and tries to make sense of it all. Each song is wrapped in mystery as Kbot navigates through the new world.
What’s particularly interesting about this release is that moving on from the initial sound, the music explodes into this big-band arena of instrumentation. Despite the inherent and heartfelt declaration of desire, the fear of loneliness, the music has a notably uplifting, even joyful sound on occasion.
The gentler and interesting musical moments come with the whole track and it is amazing. It also keeps things interesting, always implementing change and evolution and creative freedom. The track is notably different and we are pretty sure you want to play the same again and again, perhaps more willingly taking on the experimental side of music-making. That thread remains though, and the creative variation is simply a strong indication as well. It’s always refreshing to hear a new and unique take on electro-house music.
This track’s hook is important as it offers a peacefully melodic moment that again provides contrast and further appeal within the track. It’s a strong hook, not overly flashy or loud but simple and effective, meeting the mood and the concept of the song in a blissful way. There’s a definite sense of identity of the track, a certain tone, and a performance style that comes through as fresh and exciting. It’s also a pleasure to listen to awesome music with just a few simple effects added to enhance the distance and thoughtfulness of the track, rather than to fit in with some industry-standard or expectation. The track is free from influence and flawlessly performed. Definitely an artist to look out for.
