Album number four from Mount Kimbie is an atypical affair. As suggested by the title, perhaps it is best to consider this a transition piece between albums three and four as ‘MK 3.5: Die Cuts | City Planning’ is packaged as a double album with each of the two MK members, Dom Maker and Kai Campos, taking one half of the record each as a miniature solo outing. The first half, ‘Die Cuts’ from Maker is a hazy Hip Hop focused collection that rests on his low-key Boom Bap beats and features a host of guest stars including slowthai, Danny Brown, James Blake, and Wiki. On the flipside, Kai Campos delivers a bubbling set of glassy and atmospheric, minimal Techno. The contrast between the two is stark, yet the threads back towards the Mount Kimbie sound are easily identified throughout. Where those threads lead, to a true album four or not, is yet to be revealed.
