Kailin ‎– Fracture

“I wrote Fracture to express how it sometimes feels like the world is splintering into noise. Our real selves seem to get lost when we spend so much time in the virtual world. It feels like a kind of masochism when we subject ourselves to a constant stream of other people’s lives. I had this idea in mind when I wrote ‘Gimp’. I wanted to convey the idea of a loss of self, of the pressure of being surrounded by millions of hyperactive and overly reactive opinions.”

Kailin – Fracture (Vinyl)
Making up the first album release on Mistry after seven club-hingeing EPs from the likes of Batu, Laksa, Chevel and Webstarr, Kailin’s Fracture occupies an introspective middle-distance between perceptions of club and ambient modes of reception by disintegrating dancefloor structures into a near-metaphysical presence with mercurial, vapourising gestures. Like Schrödingers cat in a bassbin, it’s neither or, and possibly both at the same time, depending on your perception.
This paradoxical sense of detachment and immersion perhaps stems from the album’s production; originally sketched out in a 2 month haze, then left to steep for much longer, before the collection’s nuances and conflicting elements began to reveal themselves in remarkable formations such as the OOBE electro flex of Circling or the midnight quantum jazz dynamics of Gimp, or a really big highlight in the teetering, polymetric ambient pop of Respite.
No doubt it’s a fascinating and quintessential turn for Mistry, one which lives up to the label’s name and its roots in the duppie dread effect of UK soundsystem culture, yet never previously revealed by Beneath’s imprint in such absorbing and heady style before now.
