Kulkid — Forgot About Kul / I Need U EP
It's been a few months since we've heard from French producer Kulkid, last featured here for his dynamic originals U Were The One and Have I Ever Told U. Yet this week he's emerged once again, bringing us his very first sounds of the year through a fresh EP complete with a brand new set of original tracks. Following suit with his previous work, both Forgot About Kul and I Need U carry out the Apls-raised artist's individual brand of house, which plays as a sort of melting pot of styles, effectively creating a vibe that's completely unique to itself. Where the former comes in with deep, developed, and well polished lines that let the tweaked familiarity of the melodies and pitched down vocal clips meld cleverly together as one — the latter takes a more vocally driven approach, with the lyrics yearning at the forefront and perfectly paired with the chopped up beat for a spry, energetic effect. A feature in The Magician's latest edition of the coveted Magic Tapes series is just further proof of the talented and diverse musical palette from the up-and-comer, and surely makes Kulkid worth adding to that list of ones to watch.
