Listen: Kane Ikin – Warehouses

Here’s the title track from Kane Ikin’s forthcoming cassette EP, which is due to release through This Thing on March 26. Judging by the sound of ‘Warehouses’ I’d hazard a guess that it was recorded in one, and if it wasn’t then Ikin is very good at simulating the barren production line motions you’d associate with one.

I like this track because it seems to reverse the hauntological aspects of mid ’00s UK garage and dubstep, and the sensation of hearing a pumping underground warehouse rave from several blocks away, or on the way to the night bus. On ‘Warehouses’ it’s the opposite: you’re inside and the party is everywhere else, obscured by the functions within.

The tape’s mastered by Mikey Young and is available now.
