KRTS "Bonehead"

Berlin's Project: Mooncircle label recently announced its latest compilation, Uprising, featuring underexposed talent from the more experimental circles of electronic music. "Bonehead," by Brooklyn-based artist KRTS (a.k.a. Kurtis Hairston), is a strong contribution to the anthology, and lays a foundation of askew handclaps around which Hairston assembles a deft, organically rich slab of jungle bass. Brimming with textural variety, the piece's pops, rasps, clacks, gooey bassline, and gurgling marimba tones all work in tandem as a sort of multi-faceted aural shiatsu. Following the Uprising compilation's release on November 1, Project: Mooncircle will also issue KRTS' upcoming The Foreigner EP on December 6.
