Barely three months after dropping his celebrated full-length album Ataraxia (read our track-by-track guide here), Singapore's godfather of drum & bass has dropped yet another document, this time in the form of a brand new five-track EP entitled Leipzig.
Released via respected German label Defrostatica, this new record sees the Syndicate chief in prime form with three refreshing and impeccably-produced D&B cuts. Opening number 'Brooklyn' is smooth and resolute while 'Procession' is a dubby and atmospheric beast that truly see Kiat playing to his strengths. On the backend, 'Slider' presents us with an eerie and muscular climax to Kiat's Saxony journey.
The EP is also complemented with a pair of outstanding remixes of 'Brooklyn' by accomplished Frankfurt-based producer Kabuki and Icelandic junglist Agzilla. The former '5 Borough Remix' is a slick footwork interpretation that harkens back to Kabuki's Berlin night New Forms, while the latter is a faultless breakbeat rework that's sublime and satisfying on every level.
The EP is available for purchase via Bandcamp, Hardwax, Juno and Redeye. In the meantime, you can stream it on Spotify.
