unreleased, and previously unheard, and as yet unnamed Flint Kids tracks.
Responsible for Interakt Records, Danny Nolan & Dave Smith are Flint Kids, a London duo who for the past decade have been conjuring up various forms of electronica, heavily forged in the electro breaks bass substrains which makes them honourary Darkfloor practitioners. Describing their sound as
Glitches and bleeps fuse with organic matter fired from a techno blunderbuss to create a pool of binary sputum that finds no home in any one genre.
With an unreleased back catalogue reportedly larger than Linford Christie’s chopper it’s only in the past few years that select cuts of their sound has been unleashed through their own Interakt. Their exclusive session is rammed with some of these unreleased pieces together with some forthcoming heavyweight bleeps.
What may begin as a well earned, candlelit, soak in the tub of ambience can quickly drain away, as they pull the plug, leaving the listener cascading down a dark, jagged, hole with only a rungless ladder made of plasticine……. not for the faint hearted.
