Detalles Micros Mornings
- Words: Dave Segal
- Label: Kupei Musika
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
Seattle-based Kupei Musika's first full-length release, Micros Mornings by Detalles (classically trained Chicago composer Kate Simko and Chilean techno master Andres Bucci), is an auspicious beginning. The 11 tracks here ooze class and intelligent restraint; Simko and Bucci are minimalists who pack every facet of their music with the highest quality ingredients. This is microhouse with exquisite percussion and keyboard timbres, mellifluous melodies, expert arrangements, and soft-cushioned yet insistent beats. One can imagine Michael Mayer mulling over which tracks to include on his next Immer mix. (May I suggest "Distance" or "Hello Donee?") Yes, Micros Mornings is that sublime.
