Needwant welcome Berlin duo Kim Brown back into the fold with the stellar ‘Pleasuredome Continu-um’’. Comprised of two dynamic breakbeat cuts to sink into and some incredible remixes from Earth Boys (Let’s Play House) and Kemback (Omena/Futureboogie).
‘Helical Scan’ comes straight from the Berlin 5am scene with raw breakbeat production and huge hit-ting pads and rolling synths. Whilst the uniquely titled ‘Ceramic Unicorns’ is anything but fluffy and cuddly. The pulsating hi-hat, lofi percussion and cosmic chords take you to another level.
Kim Brown is Ji-Hun Kim & Julian Braun, local heroes on the Berlin club scene and
rising producers with previous releases on Just Another Beat, Retreat, Rivulet, Rimini, Freerange, Fauxpas Musik, Film and Permanent Vacation.
Over the past ten years the Needwant mantra has been to push the very best in new talent, having provided the platform for the likes of Kiwi, The Mekanism, Maxxi Soundsystem, The Revenge and many more.

perhaps not so innovative, given Burial's stylistic parameters, these tracks are more like a frolic, made of fragments who are like distant relatives, getting nowhere really, but still being enjoyable in their atmospheric anticipation. This is more so in the case of Nightmarket, which fits what I like to think of as lo-fi trance, as anticipated in a superb track like ashtray wasp, although with a beatless and more orchestral approach in this case. aelena
