by way of Brazil – who, since 2009, has created a healthy
discography of potent beats and sublime atmospheres.
With an early inspiration in hip hop and, importantly, Gang
Starr’s Daily Operation, Kill Emil has been prolifically
chopping up breaks on his MPC and is now up to his third
artist album, the intriguingly titled Salvation.
Its twelve tracks introduce dense soundscapes and
clever samples over rough, funky rhythms, providing fuel
to the DJs and head-nodders alike. Highlights on this
Cold Busted release include the bouncy and somewhat
spacey “When I See Your Smile”, the wistful yet playful
“Can’t Find It”, and the surprisingly cosmic “Such A Long
Time”. Kill Emil’s constructions contain many twists and
turns within the layers ... this imaginative producer keeps
things interesting for the full run of his captivating album.
