Kero - Live PA (glitch/techno/idm)

So I listened to this mid-morning today while I was doing some coding for one of our customers. I wasn't paying 100% attention to it (as I would normally) but I think that on at least half a dozen occasions the transitions in this set really surprised me.

I loved this set for the fact that it was playful and had enough rhythm so as not to limit its appeal to the cranial-massaging intellectual crowd. :)

I think what stands out most for me, though, are some of the fantastic transitions that keep this thing sounding fresh for the entire set.

I'll definitely be giving this another listen tonight. Merci beaucoup!

Yeah, it's a tight, punchy set. I don't generally like to talk about geography and artists, but as much as Kero is invested in the Miami-Schematic/UK-Warp sound(s), he is still very much a Detroit artist. :)

When you think about artists like Kero & Jimmy Edgar, it's quite clear that there are some new sounds bubbling to the surface of Detroit; let's hope the music press & public are willing to listen with a fresh ear rather than measure these artists against all the (tired) cliches associated w/ Motor City.

Is that for all of his stuff? A lot of his production is armchair IDM, but he can bang it out for the floor as well. I prefer his more beat-oriented floor friendly stuff personally.. but I suppose all of his stuff likes to get the headphone treatment.

Kero just released a full length on Neo-Ouija.




I have a copy of this but I haven't got a chance to listen to it yet. Warpmart gave it a pretty good writeup. Regardless, I'm pretty pumped to hear Kero this weekend as the material he prepared for our journal is killer.

i'm new to the music downloading thing, but why when i click on this link my screen calls this an unknown type of file and it's only 25 kb or so, shouldn't it be coming up as an mp3 of 4000 or 5000 kb?

I've been able to get some mixes downloaded, but not this one and not that yohimbe one that basilisk posted. Help?
