There's something delightfully eccentric about the smoky, off-kilter productions of German beatmaker Am Kinem. While much of this third full-length could be considered "deep house", it's anything but standard fare. He's clearly influenced by sample culture, hip-hop and leftfield electronica, and weaves these elements into tracks that ripple with bluesy intent and the mellow swing of deep jazz. The effect is largely spellbinding and strangely eccentric, sounding like a slightly more house flavoured take on the work of Al Dobson Jr and Mo Kolours. The package is excellent, too, with the hand-stamped LP being accompanied by a 10" featuring remixes from Harmonious Thelonius, Retrogott and Hulk Hodn.
