Ray Kandinski & Karl Lumont: Project Chicago EP

The title and Kandinski’s past releases on labels like E-Beamz make this appear to be house, but it’s actually lush, atmospheric jungle filled with birdsong and vintage reggae samples, like the familiar Mikey Dread drop that appears throughout “Make Me Feel So Good”. “Project Chicago” has choppier beats, getting busier but not more aggressive. “Feel It” is more goodtime vibesy with splashing Amens, and “Heal Yourself” is a bit more lo-fi, and with more twisted breaks and spiraling synth pads. There’s also more of a bassline to this track than the others. Next time you’re playing a rave at a botanical garden or conservatory, drop something from this record.
