It’s been a pretty eventful year for FKOF Records, but we’re delighted to be ending it with a bang and by welcoming two brand artists to the imprint. We’ve been long-time fans of Oddkut and Abstrakt Sonance and when we discovered they’d been on the buttons together we knew it was material we wanted to home…
FKOFv007 joins the FKOF Records back catalogue as our latest collaborative release
and, if it’s anything like the other collab EPs we’ve dropped, we know this one’s going to
go off. The tunes on this record have been doing the rounds for a good chunk of 2021 so
it’s only fitting we end the year with them as our final release…
The aptly titled Warrior Dance kicks our seventh record off in suitable fashion. It’s all sparse but tight percussion, floaty synths and grimey atmospherics. Next up, Mystical, is a more eyes-down affair with its rolling low end, punchy kicks and effective use of space. You’ll be unsurprised to hear it’s an effective tune on systems! The B-side turns things up to 11 with Burn Babylon, which introduces itself as a wicked stepper and morphs into something all the more aggressive for its second drop. You do not want to miss this one; raw vibes inside. Last, but definitely not least, we have Bonkerz which brings us full circle back to the sparse beats, bass and space recipe we found on the A side. It’s stripped back to the bare minimum and packs a serious punch.
We’ve been working on FKOFv007 since the end of 2020, and have been sat ready and waiting to release the tunes since we got the impeccable masters back from Beau at 1087 in March 2021. It’s wicked to finally have these four cuts ready to drop and we hope you enjoy this record as much as we’ve done pulling it together. Here’s hoping we see more Oddkut and Abstrakt Sonance on FKOF Records before too long!
The release is available for pre-order from us today, and drops on general release 17th December – just in time for Christmas. You’ll be able to pre-order from our friends at Unearthed Sounds (/ the rest of the retailers with the record) from Friday 10th December.
