Instantaneously transfixed by the tribal roll on the drums, there’s great anticipation for the progression of this track. It fills with ambience and sections of chords which delight the ear whilst maintaining a bold percussive base. Kamran has an incredible ability to strip some norms out of tracks and still deliver a stand out project.
London born Kamran may be better known as Moleskin who always showed great ability to sample and incorporate unusual sounds into his productions, giving a distinct measure of variety to Grime through his creations. We see his ability to do this throughout the whole Transmission album. Takeoff in Tehran transports us to Kamran’s native Iran where we hear some Farsi and the traditional Tombak drum which was considered the main base for percussion in early Persian music.
As well as tracing back to Kamran’s roots, this album also explores Space. The producer has a fantastic ability to transport the listener to the Spaceship setting, calmly floating amidst the dark. You’ll notice examples of this in Zero G and Internal Pressure Rising.
Such a unique and worthwhile listen, many selectors will find use for these tracks in their sets. Check out the release here – https://kamrantracks.bandcamp.com/
