Mount Kimbie are made up of twenty-four-year-old Kai Campos and twenty-three-year-old Dom Maker. Kai is orginally from St. Auster in Cornwall while Don hails from Brighton. They met at Southbank University in London, where Kai was having a second stab at university and Dom was studying film. Post-dubstep may sound a trite term but it is relevant to Mount Kimbie. We get two-step revisited with fascinating percussion instruments that make a Burial drum pattern sound like a string of different-sized bottles being dragged off by a wedding car. It’s dubstep revisited - in the accurately-titled Sketch On Glass we get what sounds like a garage track, complete with compressed vocal, and yet chunky beats are replaced by a rubbery squeaks and cluttered, light percussion.
