KMRU & Echium – Peripheral (KMRU, digital)

It's not so long ago that Joseph »KMRU« Kamaru moved from Kenya to Berlin and yet the sound artist seems busier than ever. Just this month, he released »Place: Nairobi,« a compilation he put together that paid tribute to the contemporary electronic (dance) music scene in his hometown, and now follows that up with a joint album with the semi-anonymous Manchester producer Echium. »Peripheral« is accompanied by hardly any information about its creation, but the music speaks for itself: densely layered ambient enriched with field recordings for the late hours in the evening.
