K-6000: Bloodsport LP

The second release on Hamtramck label 100 Limousines is an LP of “lore-core” (according to Discogs) from K-6000. Each side flows continuously, and the tracks sound somewhere in between Andy Stott’s knackered house and the cinematic creepiness of Snakepiss. Samples loop and flutter by, and there’s one overt hip-hop flashback near the beginning of the record, but nothing here really holds on for long. It’s just a mind-blurring drift set mostly to a midtempo thump, flashing past some dark thoughts but never dwelling on them. The second side gets a bit harder, especially with the hammering drums of “Veiled Threats”, although it veers closer to synth-funk after that. The record is filled with unexplained phenomena and it’s over before you know it, but it sounds utterly fantastic. The Bandcamp page doesn’t include audio, so you’ll just have to take my word for it.
