Forgot About Kul sets the tone with a moody bassline and ominous pad sounds, pitched-down vocals looping as layers melody slowly build. A plucked guitar line recalls the classic hip-hop anthem referenced in the title, completing the atmospheric soundscape in infectious style. Lashings of sub energy boom away as the delicate refrains play, all making for a powerful track with bundles of character.
I Need U enlists a slice of a classic house diva vocal as its focal point, the track kicking off with a sizable breakdown / build that propels it into life. 90s organ bass and deft chime melodies give way to a more driving low end, vocal chops and a stabby old skool riff. It’s a track that blends Kulkid’s contemporary influences with the Euro dance heritage of yesteryear that no doubt soundtracked his upbringing in France.
These two captivating tracks make for a highly accomplished debut EP that points a finger to a very bright future for this French talent.
