KRTS "The Dread of an Unknown Evil"
Apparently, KRTS (a.k.a. Kurtis Hairston) explored some pretty dark themes on his latest effort, The Dread of an Unknown Evil, such as doubt, sorrow, and fear of the unknown. Yet, the album's title track seems to suggest a merrier disposition for the Brooklyn-based producer. While the bassline sinks into deep registers and lo-fi sound effects—like the sounds of a camera shutter and a hellish jump rope—keep the mood subdued, harmonizing vocals, playful handclaps, and a heavy cymbal rhythm bring a much brighter hue to the song. The Berlin-based Project: Mooncircle label will release The Dread of an Unknown Evil on December 10.
