We took a cursory glimpse into the world of Russian producer Koett when we heard a remix of his "Lost Time" track by Barcelona producer Sau Poler. Now, the man born Alexander Tochilkin has shared "Down," a track from his upcoming Golden Peak LP for Applescal's Atomnation label. Kicking off with layers of skittering percussion over the top of an insistent sample loop, "Down" neatly segues into a dense, hazy groove that sits squarely between Caribou's sunny psychedelia and Flying Lotus' polymorphic creations. The production builds elegantly as dusty strings and crate-sourced samples collide in glorious fashion before fading off into the horizon—making for an impressively crafted effort which bodes well for the rest of Golden Peak. As a matter of fact, Koett's new album can be streamed ahead of its November 25 release, after the jump.
