Warp are pleased to announce the signing of Mount Kimbie, the two-piece comprised of Kai Campos and Dom Maker. The duo has released a handful of EPs, as well as the critically acclaimed 2010 full length Crooks & Lovers, and is currently working on their first Warp release. They have previously done several rounds of US shows in 2010 and 2011 which included gigs at SXSW and a performance at Coachella 2011. Kai and Dom set about turning London’s ambience into rhythm, its chaos into coherence. Traces of influence remain – the hard-earned spaces of Burial and The Bug live with the berserk melodrama of Xiu Xiu and Grouper’s sad-eyed glow, D’Angelo’s pervert soul gets cleansed in the intimacy of Phil Elvrum’s Microphones, Angelo Badalamenti’s swollen ‘Twin Peaks’ atmospheres find a cradle in Madlib’s lax lope. Here is the special Tiny Desk Concert, Mont Kimbie played april 18th 2011.
