This first time I caught wind of K Theory’s Welcome to K Theory was on SoundCloud and I pretty much passed right over it. See, the problem with SoundCloud is I get inundated with new tracks regularly, so when I see an album release, I listen to one track and move right on. SoundCloud also doesn’t organize the multiple uploads very effectively, though I’m guessing the NEXT SoundCloud will improve on it. Thankfully, however, the good ol’ guys at The Untz highlighted one of the best tracks for me, resulting in my indulgence with the rest of the album.
Welcome to K Theory sports six breakbeat tracks that are beside the best. Wolfgang Gartner is actually who came to mind first, one of my favorites, even though he’s all over the map, style wise. The electro bass is clipped clean with a hip-hop mantra that reminded me of PL, as well. Unfortunately, not all the tracks carried the same weight, but they usually never do.
Check out my two favorites, ‘Warrior’ for it’s south-western swang and The Untz inspirer, ‘Magic City.’ Oh, and ‘Midnight Girl’ for its electro HIGHlights. Then move on to the rest, they’re well worth a one time run through.
Styles: Breakbeat, “Broken Beats, For Broken lives.”
