about

Macro has been the home for the albums of some of electronic music’s most exciting live acts. So when you are a live band and you enter this context, you’d better enter with a bang. Easy – KUF do just this with their debut EP for the label. The three-piece outfit with keys, bass anddrums cook up a sound that’s as warm, cozy and exciting as it is utterly alien, all at the very same time. The rhythm section hints at the great history of dirty funk and r’n’b, but the grooves are firmly of today: dance-centered and broken up at the best possible joints.

The bewildering thing about KUF is that it is a vocal-led group that has no singer on stage at all. All vocal elements are based on self-recorded samples which keyboard whizz kid Tom Schneider melds and bends and squeezes in real time. As if it was a regular thing to do. With no artificial synchronization in place, Valentin Link on bass and Hendrik Havekost on drums push the disembodied, highly abstract voices into an arena of hyperintegrated realtime magic.

“Odyssee” and “Wildlife” are full-on introductions to the world of KUF, with “Staring At The Sky” being a jam-type addition which the band is killing with in their live sets. The title track also comes with a special guest VIP remix for the techno clubs. But never forget this is a live band, and that’s how anything you hear here has been developed. Seeing is believing.
