For a label with a reputation for releasing new artists and debuts (Teebs, BNJMN under his Jackhigh alias, Nightwave, Brey) Kelpe is something of a veteran signing for Svetlana. In fact, years before anyone tried to give the style a name - remember ‘wonky’? - Kelpe was dropping the beats with his first EP on DC Recordings way back in 2003, and a year later an album that The Wire called “one of the most engrossing listens in recent electronic music”. After three albums and a bunch of EPs he started to release more widely, including a belter of an EP for Black Acre which got on many end of year top tens.

Hissing gas in place of high hats, a mechanical forward motion, a heavy trembling synth bass monotone, then 40 seconds in it launches into classic Kelpe banger - a heavy 100bpm beat, with a beautiful evolving elegiac melody on top, exciting, happy and sad, all at the same time, like the best Aphex tunes. Next up is the vinyl exclusive BNJMN renix of ‘Cola Mine’. BNJMN’s star has risen rapidly in the last 18 months,
