A year has passed since the fantastic Cambio Wechsel album was released, now Kelpe makes his return on Black Acre with four new tracks. We mentioned the video for Margins already, let’s talk a bit about at the music.
I have already expressed my love for the title track, a journey through psych rock guitar riffs, oriental music and some truly magnificient drum beats. That’s it, go buy! Oh right, there are some three more tracks and they’re definitely worth checking out. The drums stay punchy (Toy Castle!), but in come the synthesizers giving the other tracks a much more electronic feeling. All of the tracks have this playfulness in common, that makes it easy to fall in love with.A1. Margins
A2. No Film
B1. Toy Castle
B2. Taps On

Following his 2009 album Cambio Wechsel, London’s Kelpe is set to return with a 4-track EP on Team Acre. Below you can listen to its title track “Margins”, which is also my favourite on the release.
I love how music and video compliment each other, which is probably because Kelpe filmed the footage himself on a trip to Nevada and California. The music will be available digitally on October 4th, the vinyl will follow a week later!
What sounds a bit like that unofficial Flying Lotus remix of Mr. Oizo ($tunt$), is actually a collaboration of the highly talented individuals Blue Daisy and Tokimonsta.
The track will be part of the a forthcoming release on Team Acre, a sub-branch of the Black Acre label. If you like the track, leave them a comment on SoundCloud!
