When thinking about the minimal genre, one ponders clicks, pops, spastic edits, and repetition, but these generalizations should be thrown out the window when listening to Kilo. The duo of Florian Bogner and Markus Urban sketches a soundscape of bizarre ambient electronics, adding organic instruments including a double-bass, guitar, trumpet, and several other horns. Mixed with a hypnotic jazz feel, and washed in a load of experimental synth charm, this is a fantastic fusion of neo-pop and microhouse. While pressing the limits of studio trickery, these folktronic pioneers also push the limits of improvisation.
