about

CAIN closes out his Fine Grains triptych with a vivacious EP of signature bass shuddering polyrhythmic drums. ‘High Call’, his first 12” on the now Amsterdam-based label, offers 6 original tracks and a remix by Japanese producer Jun Kamoda in homage to the revelatory spirit and pre-medieval origins of carnivals. Artwork by Dutch/Scottish artist Roos Dijkhuizen created through ink and water drawings.

Colours emerge from the dark glowing torches, fire embers flicker through the night. ‘Caapi’ warmly draws you into the proceedings, an alluring tease of soothing chimes and infectious shuffling drums. From ‘Apsara’, Cain sets us on the front foot. A pounding stuttering rhythm ignites the track, as spinning chord sounds echo and a haunting hallucinatory vocal lures in the listener. The carnival is fully alive in ‘Gundon Night’, a sinister and menacing broken track steered by Cossack warrior chants. High on the mountain we reach the pinnacle of ‘High Call’, a triumphant lead track with CAIN’s recognisable warm and driving rhythmical drum patterns. The otherworldly psychoacoustic melodies of ‘Taiyi’ and slower-paced triplet drum structures of ‘Zetwal’ are the outliers of the EP, but compliment the resounding spirit. Jun Kamoda’s zany and intense take on the lead track, ‘High Call’, ends the EP in a playful, multi-coloured order.
