Hot on the heels of his All City Records release in November, Cork-native Colm K delivers two club-ready cuts, rounded off with a pumping remix from the unmistakable K15 on the flip. This marks the third release from Tiff’s Joints, a label run by Irish-born, London-based DJ Sean Keating aka Born Cheating. Though somewhat sporadic, Tiff Joint’s have become an important outlet for global electronic sounds, with their previous exploits from São Paulo’s DJ Tahira and South London’s Deoke receiving ongoing support from influential tastemakers like Alexander Nut and Gilles Peterson.
Following up his first solo release on Eglo Records, CoOp affiliate K15 lends his instantly recognisable style to title track ‘Beginnings’. Stripping back the dense percussive patterns of the original, he applies that signature bounce he’s becoming increasingly known for and replaces Colm K’s soothing Balearic bass line with floor-trembling sub, summoning a likeness to Kaytranada’s early records. Having left Colm’s harmonies and G-Funk synth embellishments relatively untouched, K15 once again showcases his acutely minimal approach to music making – a style that has certified him as one of the most distinctive UK producers in jazz-influenced club music.
Beginnings/Six Four Hundred is out on 9 March, pre order your copy from Tiff’s Joints.
