Three album's into their career Mount Kimbie have established themselves among the UK’s most progressive and respected artists.
Formed in 2008 by Dominic Maker and Kai Compos, the duo's central role in the birthing of the so-called “post-dubstep” sound initially inspired a generation of electronic producers around the turn of the decade, and has more recently crossed over to some of the biggest US artists. Their Crooks & Lovers standout ‘Adriatic’ found new life in Chance the Rapper and Justin Bieber’s 2016 song ‘Juke Jam’, while Dom worked with James Blake on production for multiple tracks on JAY-Z’s forthcoming album, as well as further productions on currently unannounced projects.
Despite the weight of this influence, the band are still far from categorizable. Latest album Love What Survives only adds to their reputation, bringing together the voices of their close friends and collaborators, who together represent a corner of the UK’s young artistic talent. James Blake, Micachu and King Krule find their voice within the immersive, unique atmosphere of a Mount Kimbie album. It’s the most confident statement of intent from the boundary-pushing duo yet, and an embodiment of their career-long musical progression, proving the band are as vital as ever and offering no clues as to where their thrilling evolution might visit next. We are delighted to have them with us in Dingle this December for a unique performance in St. James' Church.
