Matt Karmil

States EP

Yumé Records
Just the fourth release on Yumé (following cuts from Neinzer and Claus Voigtmann) and already it's developing quite the rep. Doing his utmost to ensure he doesn't drop the ball is UK-born, Cologne-dwelling Matt Karmil, with three thoroughly hypnotic, minimal-yet-somehow-not-minimal grooves. 'I Freeze', with its occasional bursts of vocals, has trance-inducing qualities. 'You Boil' turns out a floor-filling, Crydamoure-esque, squelching acid loop, while 'We Thaw' — arguably the highlight here — is some of the most interesting monotony around.
