Christopher Kah – Room 4 EP – PRAXXIZ / PRZ017
PRAXXIZ records continue to evolve the cut & thrust of their release catalogue with what may be their strongest release to date.
Frenchman Christopher Kah has an impeccable “story so far” having released & remixed his take on Techno, with & for Genre Icons Terrence Fixmer, Dave Clarke, Anthony Rother, Mount Simms & Laurent Garnier.
His own releases are regularly supported by some of Technos biggest international Stars, like UK’s Dave Clarke, USA born Plasticman, and Germanys prime mover & cultural innovator Dr. Motte.
Therefore it is no real surprise that it is on Dr. Mottes very own PRAXXIZ records that we are treated to Christopher Kahs latest & quiet superb Room 4 EP, which showcases the wide ranging production talents & deep understanding of his chosen creative zone that mark him out as very much a true player and a man clearly giving his beloved Techno a lot of love !
All 4 tracks Slowly, Room 4, Misery & Addict, display a finely crafted fusion of the essential aspects of various branches from Techno`s very own Tree Of Life. All in all a real treat for open minded Minimalists, Detroit devotees & proper Techno supporters. There´s even a tip of the hat to Techno´s partly Industrial roots and a hint of Electronic Listening Music. Its all in there!
The real strength of this release is how Christopher crafts all these influences together in a way that leads the listener to acknowledge their presence, but into an end result that is not easy to define or pidgeon hole. The mark of a true Artist?
Christopher Kah shows in no uncertain terms why he is considered by some of Technos most Wanted, to be a name to be well and truly reckoned with. & PRAXXIZ show very clearly that their big picture is getting bigger, und es ist gut so!
