London based electronic stalwart Kel McKeown – aka Kelpe – celebrates ten years of sonic boundary pushing with new maxi single, DRUT001/ 'Answered' - preceding new LP 'Fourth: The Golden Eagle'.
The 7-minute white noise drenched 'Answered' is the epic final track of the LP and is being released as a 3 track “maxi single” here with two like-minded B-sides. Kelpe says this of the lead track: “It was put together using a selection of analogue synths – Moogs, Korg Polysix, Korg MS10 and Doepfer Dark Energy and all three Korg Monotrons. It's a track of all seasons, perhaps because I worked on it for so long and threw everything I knew at it. The proggy twinkles and textures make me think of Christmas but the guitar and four to the four feel are also a touch balearic.”
Opening the flipside of the maxi single is 'Haunt' - which Kelpe credits with a similar mood to the 'Answered' but describes it as more pastoral, uptempo and heavier, with a slightly distorted 4 / 4 kick drum and sharp sawtooth bass.
Serving as a mellow finale to the record is Barney's Dream. This is the most recent production on the record and is “sort of an ode to a lovely looking old ginger dog called Barney that my Grandparents had many years ago, although I only remember him from photos. It's a mellow track with a sad / happy feel that builds slowly with one element at a time adding one by one over a repetitive piano line.”
