"It's a giddy ride" 7/10 - The 405
"Stellar analogue krautrock, house, and hip hop-indebted electronic music" - Dummy

Following the release of his album ‘The Curved Line’, Kelpe has unveiled a new video for playfully-titled album track ‘Chirpsichord’. Kelpe is set to play a London show this Thursday, Sept 17th at The Waiting Room in Stoke Newington.
Created by Belgian collective Alosta Souls, it’s a suitably luminescent clip, reflecting the propulsive beats, soft bubbling arpeggios and shifting loops of the track.

A natural son and heir to Generation Warp and the fathers of Krautrock, Kelpe’s pioneering experiments in the early '00s positioned him as one of many stylistic precursors to the arrival of LA's now-sprawling beat scene. Much like scene-savants Prefuse 73 and Dimlite, Kelpe has remained an enormously respected stalwart of the fringes, always dabbling variously in sample-heavy beat-craft, oddball ambient, and – more recently – dancefloor-ready club grub.
Kelpe returned to grace his still-young imprint DRUT RECORDINGS with 'The Curved Line'. It’s a record transfixed on tonality and texture – Korgs, Moogs and pocket pianos all feature heavily across the album's rich palette. The exciting sonic bursts of his last effort have evolved confidently and blown out into soaring progressions and flowing structures – all evidence of a tireless producer gunning to out-do himself.
