Cork native Colm K has been making waves on both the Irish and international scene since his selection for the Red Bull Music Academy in 2003. With releases onBastard Jazz,r2, and his recent release onAll City Records, Colm K has earned his place on both critics' and fans' radars. He has refined and defined his style throughout the years both as a producer and DJ, as well as holding down his residency at Cork's renownedSunday Timesparty.
Colm K steps up for the third release on Tiff's Joints with two contrasting off-kilter jams. "Beginnings" sees Colm strip things right back - led by a bubbling organic percussion line, soothing chords and a near g-funk lead melody. "Six Four Hundred" steps things up a notch. Kicking off with jagged, broken drums and morphing into a skippy, bottom heavy bubbler with a tilt of the hat to West London's Co-Op movement. The B-side sees the inimitable K15 (Eglo Records/Wild Oats) put his own spin on "Beginnings", trading the spaced grooves for a driving beat and luscious keys licks. Early support comes from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Josey Rebelle, Alexander Nut, Jimpster, Kev Beadle and more.
