Premiere: Kadahn – Remember
With releases out on his own Half Death outlet (also see: Darkmatter, Sangam) and a single out via Kastle’s Symbols label, New York-based producer Kadahn has begun to draw fans to his disassociate take on grime and other strains of soundsystem music. Silver Shadow of a Shrine, arriving May 4 via the always excellent Hush Hush Records, is both the producer’s longest and most complete release to date, an eight song tape that reads as a synthesizer-driven opus to New York. And like label-mate Kid Smpl, Kadahn clearly owes a great deal to the London lineage of dance music. “Remember” brings to mind the abstract fringe of grime, Mr. Mitch’s peace edits in particular, as well as the shuffling, sample-driven approach of Flukes, Iron Soul and other cult favorites. Silver Shadow of a Shrine can be pre-ordered via iTunes and more Kadahn material is available here.
