Excellent 15 minute session recorded by Brooklyn's Gang Gang Dance in August 2007, prior to their 'St. Dymphna' opus for Warp. At this point in their sound we find the group in transition between the cut-up forms of their earlier releases and the magpied beat structures of their current style. Essentially they treat rhythms from B-More to Grime, Dubstep and techno as modern folk forms to be weaved with their Far and Mid-eastern inclinations as if they're stepping 20 years into the future to gaze back on the late 2000s as say Zomby may do with all manner of 90s rave and its related offspring. 'Kamakura' is an exotic futurist statement, imagining a fractal future where Paavoharju and Terror Danjah collide in a telepathic drum circle conducted by a malfunctioning, semi-sentient macbook, flowing at fluid right angles between all manner of textural juxtapositions yet never losing their hypnotic groove. From another perspective it's ultimate hipster music, mashing the best bits of up-to-the-minute pop and experimental modes, but the unpredictable and intuitive arrangements push them leagues ahead of Girltalk. We don't how they do it, but Latitudes always seem to draw the best out any artists who enter their studio and this is no different. Recommended! (Boomkat)
