DOTW: Kenton Slash Demon, Sun (Portable Remix)

When we last checked in with Silas Moldenhawer and Jonas Kenton of Kenton Slash Demon they had just released their first single for Copenhagen’s increasingly noteworthy Tartelet Records. The Danish duo, who are also members of indie rockers When Saints Go Marching, have since returned with a much more ambitious project: a trilogy of singles under the banner of The Schwarzchild Solution. The first edition presents “Sun,” a track which pushes The Books-styled acoustic samples into bumping tech-house forms. The flipside, our Download of the Week, is Portable’s melancholic remix of “Sun.” The way Alan Abrahms repeats the title in his emotive tenor it’s a bit like a dirge, but the original’s shimmering samples lighten the mood as they mingle with his unusual battery of percussion and snaking, almost acid-house-like synth progressions. The overall affect is like dancing in a cable car as it zips across power lines with the sun setting in the background. Leave it to Abrahms to make such a peculiar track even weirder and more compelling. Our thanks to Kenton Slash Demon, Portable and Tartelet Records for sharing this tune with all of us.
