Untitled 13

05.25.2010

A - so fast
B - so long ago

Kenneth Scott's Untitled 13 is a deep techno generator, running low and slow. Churning below the 120 BPM threshhold, these heavy tracks overflow with sparkling details and melodic twists.
so fast pumps out Detroit-tuned synths with a near-orchestral approach to composition...but something's not quite right as leads joust in and out of tune, jumping left and right, creating unexpected, decentered shifts.
so long ago spins like a dark, dancefloor caliope in dialog with minimal pricks and pops.
This pair of tracks were originally lost when Scott's laptop was stollen from a gig in 2009. Luckily, a cd-r of so fast and so long ago was found in the DJ booth at legendary 222 Club in San Francisco in early 2010.
Hence, this pairing is the beginning and the end. There will never be a remix.
