Kami-Sakunobe House Explosion K-S.H.E – Routes Not Roots - Route 3 EP
Label: Comatonse Recordings – C.013.EP3 Format: Vinyl, 12", EP, 33 ⅓ RPM, 45 RPM, White Country: Japan Released: Jun 2006 Genre: Electronic Style: Deep House
Third and final inclusion to the epic K-S.H.E tryptic produced by Terre Thaemlitz aka DJ Sprinkles unleashed via her own Comatonse imprint. Specific to the vinyl release is an odd live ensemble version of the politically-charged Thaemlitz classic 'Hobo Train' in partnership with musical supergroup Zeitkratzer recorded live in Berlin, whilst 'Down Home Kami-Sakunobe' pays homage to the nondescript Kawasaki suburb with a string-led, atypical deep house bomb replete with those wild digital piano keys. Undeniably though the highlight is the ivory-led heart-string tugger 'Head (In My Private Lounge, My Pad)', that closes the K-S.H.E album. Feel like few others can tap into this super intimate, melancholic mood as Terre.Midtown 120 Blues gets all the plaudits but Routes not Roots offers something truly unique that’s only revealed after deeper investigation.Stone classic!(NM/VG+).
