Release Of The WeeK: Kimyan Law – Coeur Calme (Blu Mar Ten Music)
Posted by Adam on 10th November 2014
After appearing literally out of nowhere Kimyan Law, real name Nico Mpunga, has been causing quite a stir and his debut album, entitled Coeur Calme (which translates to Quiet Heart), is finally here.
I’ve listened to the album from start to finish a few times now and with each listen I found myself dissappearing deeper and deeper into another world that Nico has beautifully crafted.
When an album comes out that doesn’t fit into our usual standards for a Drum & Bass release I would normally say that it’s pushing the boundaries of the genre as we know it but in the case of Coeur Calme its almost genre-less. Of course there are some obvious Drum & Bass influences, for example the brilliant ‘Run Ames‘, but this isn’t the kind of music that needs to be pigeon-holed or categorised – it’s music for the soul.
This album is a true masterpiece and I thoroughly recommend that you buy it, lock yourself away and listen to it from start to finish to start to finish to start to finish…..
