After a long hiatus, RACECAR, Ltd. presents a new, three-part series from newcomer Kevin Kendall. All of the three EPs, "Adult Skate", "Blue" and "Room 208" are an exploration in sound design with a steady grasp on movement and a keen mentalist mindset. Just as groove-inspired as they are experimental, Kevin Kendall melds his near-prodigy abilities musically with a strong, futurist identity. The Final Installment in Kevin Kendall's three part series is a ode to the early days of minimal techno and micro house. "Room 208" is a sparse romp focused on the beat and the pulse with a droning, endless beat with bleeps and blops building with arpeggiated, other-worldly builds and breaks. On the flip-side, "Kumiko" is a bass-heavy beast sure to rattle any Cadillac it's bumped in. The prettier side of jacking techno will surely remind listeners of the mid-to-late 1990s with a more modern nod to arrangement. As musical as it is pumping, this release will appeal to the purist and the newcomer in all things techno and house.

About the artist

From the fields of Kansas to the hills of Mexico and all the way back to the sounds of Nashville, Kevin Kendall crafts electronic music with a rich sound based in exploration and life experience. His attention to sonic textures mixed with a soulful groove gives his music a profound emotional quality that is sometimes lacking in modern dance music. Notably catching are his basslines, where he excels from years of wielding a bass guitar and knows how to deftly punctuate and anchor the music to the dance floor.
