KRTS - The Dread Of An Unknown Evil
In 2011 we saw KRTS breaking free from the boundaries of NYC's five boroughs, releasing his first EP, Hold On, with the Berlin-based label Project: Mooncircle. The five tracks of Hold On represent the organic, heavily emotional and lively style of broken-beat, fusion jazz, boom-bap, and dubstep.

With the end of 2012 comes The Dread Of An Unknown Evil, KRTS's first LP (limited, colored, double vinyl / uv-varnish print cover) for Project: Mooncircle. With bass-culture styles reflecting the darker side of everyday reality, the album explores themes such as fear, apprehension, doubt, angst, and sorrow, with the prevailing dread of an unknown and uncertain future—always there, peering around corners, waiting and watching.

"Your Eyes" features Stevee Wellons — a soulful diva and KRTS's own mother — telling the story of lost loves and abandoned hopes.
"Knuckle Under" is an immediate cinematic ride through the chaotic New York City underground, each bass line like an elbow to the shoulder, spinning you and pushing you down until it all turns black.
"Something New" featuring sibling Jon Hairston on vocals, is a plea to love and the risks involved when we hold hearts back.

The ten tracks of The Dread Of An Unknown Evil form an intimate LP from a musician battling to make it between cities, families, loves, losses, and futures — on to the next chapter.

Project: Mooncircle / hhv.de
Berlin-based label Project: Mooncircle is an official label from hhv.de. It was founded in 2002 by Gordon Gieseking and is specializing in the conjunction between electronic and organic music. Being interested in music from his earliest childhood on, it eventually became more than just a passion to him. The label, at first envisaged as a compilation project only, found the perfect partner with Thomas Ulrich and his mail-order hhv.de in 2004, later being joined by Jinna Morocha from Moscow. This led the way for the first instrumental and vocal solo releases by such artists as Mr Cooper, 40 Winks, CYNE, Jahbitat, John Robinson, MF Doom, Lambent, Lewis Parker, Non of Shadowhuntaz, Graciela Maria, Strand, Robot Koch, Pavel Dovgal, Ta-Ku, Mika Gao, Onra, Obba Supa, fLako, Sina., 1000 Names, DZA, Krts, Long Arm or Glen Porter. In 2009 the sub-label Project: Squared, run by Paul Cooper and Peter Schachmann, two long-standing companions and co-workers, was founded. Project: Squared releases mainly Dubstep and Techno 12” records from such artists as Asusu, Furesshu, AnD, L-OW, Tom Diccico, Shifted and others. Another sub-label, Finest Ego, was added in 2010. Run by Malte Tarnow, its aim is to consolidate the versatility of instrumental beats, glitch or wonky and anything in between or beyond. The outcome are compilations with such producers as Daisuke Tanabe, Isaac Aesili, Om Unit, Lapalux, RLP, ichiro_, Himuro Yoshiteru, Pixelord, Monky, Christoph El Truento, and various others. The work of illustrators and graphic designers such as Bioniq, Dan May, Iain McArthur, Ima One, LNY, Gordon, 44 Flavours, La Mano Fria, and The Binh create images that accompany the acoustic spaces. Project: Mooncircle with its various producers & vocalist shall be an interesting experience for anyone looking for the extraordinary.

Review
Lea Fickenscher, 10.12.2012

»The Dread Of An Unknown Evil« is a record needing to be felt. Even though KRTS clearly stands in a beatmaker-tradition connected to an intellectual type of music, this record is primarily about moods and feelings. The longplayer is a conceptual album, which runs through a complete process of feelings in its ten tracks. As the title suggests, KRTS musically plays with the abstract experiences of fear, uncertainty, relief and confidence. The journey starts with »Something New«, featuring KRTS’ brother Jon Hairston. In contrast to the song’s positive mood, Jon instantly predicts black clouds moving our way: »I know you’re scared, and you should be«. »Fire« and »Close The Closet Door« slowly but continuously help the arc of suspense rise, until the mood completely changes into tension and depression with »Knuckle Under« and »Strange Boys In Blue«. The whole process is additionally reflected through KRTS’ technical style. Melodic surfaces are being replaced by colder and electronic parts by and by. »Your Eyes«, which almost melts in with the beautiful souly voice of Stevee Wellons, KRTS’ mother, is the turning point at the top. And even though the title track, »Dread Of The Unknown Evil«, can still be characterized as clear and dark, the mood begins to lighten again. »Regret To Retreat« and »She Was Worth It« are emotional reliefs, the record’s relaxation, and release the listener with a positive, almost euphoric feeling.
