We’ve got some fresh house music heat from Kai Van Dongen for our final premiere of the week. The UK based artist has provided a cosmic broken beat journey, reminiscent of olden age lo-fi house & absolutely perfect to kick start your weekend.
Boxia’s Outerworld imprint brings together artists from around the world for it’s next release, including; Japan, New York, London, and Stuttgart, for its second release. Acid intensity, full-scale boosters, and evocative soundscapes are all on display in ‘OUTER002.’
Kai Van Dongen has been pretty prolific in the studio in recent times, knocking out an assortment of dance-floor hits on various labels. Having released on 1Ø PILLS MATE, Ei8ht Records, Truncate, Underdub Records among others, it’s fair to say Kai is hitting all the right labels for a budding producer to blossom into a renowned 12 inch seller.
Born in South Africa but based in London Kai Van Donegen defies the genre boundaries that somewhat govern and control what many young producers will put out at early stages of their career. Kai has been releasing stellar techno, house, acid, electro & more, with little qualms to what may be defined as his sound. Rolling basslines, jacking vocals, crunchy drums & squelchy acid lines are integral in Kai’s output but otherwise don’t define his sound.
With ‘Chiptune Time Traveller,’ Kai Van Dongen takes us on a cosmic broken-beat voyage, using aggressive percussion and enticing vocals to transport us to another world. This is your Friday feel good soundtrack.
