Review: The Kaiju duo first signed to Deep Medi Muzik back in 2015, and the great Mala couldn't have picked a more on-point production pair for his label. Although the two artists are not from the Far East, their music and style seems to have something innately Japanese at its core, a subtle swing that carries the tracks from side to side like a samurai's swing of the blade. The opener "Envy" is the perfect example of Kaiju's ninja beats, swift and conniving licks of percussion that fit perfectly with the r&b vocals emanating from the deeper end of the mix. We're also big fans of "Sloth" because it reminds of the Brixton Mass golden days of DMZ, and "Wrath" for its sliding, metallic folds of pseudo jungle drums. Top gear.
Review: Now officially signed to Deep Medi, Schildhauer and White's Kaiju project are set to break the seal on a year of release silence with a whole new slew of dubwise dynamics. Tapping into the true roots with a real taste for organic elements, both cuts will resonate with the most ardent of classicist; "Burn Down Babylon" is all about the well-plucked bass and humming persistence of the organ. "Wrong Tings" takes us even deeper down the instrumental route with spacious drum elements, bulbous bass and crisp guitar lines. Warm, deep and wholly immersive, there's some awesome science going on here.
Review: After plates for Osiris, Lion Charge and Ruff Cut, Bristol pairing Jamie Schildhauer and Paul White bring their Kaiju project to the Deep Medi label. Lead track "Justice" has been a much sought after dubplate for some time, and a fine example of Kaiju's innate understanding of dub science implementing only a few elements - haunting flutes, floating synths and crisp percussion - with deadly precision. Justice is served! Complementing this, Kaiju conjure some truly monstrous atmospheres with "Creeper" - if Demdike Stare turned their hands to steppahs it might sound like this. Deep Medi is nearing its 100 release and every one of them have been superb.
