KANGDING RAY . Tempered Inmid . SA017
Kangding Ray . Tempered Inmid
For SA017 Kangding Ray brings an EP defined by dexterity: "Tempered Inmid". It is a record which balances the deepest drum with the most celestial synth, weaving a legend of both menace and tenderness. Possessed of an underlying hiss, the title track surges to dampen its muscular beat with a fabric of warm melodies. The discerning "Dimen Andesso" is the Tempered partner, shuffling with a considered high-end and off-kilter pads. On the flip KR ramps up the pace in introducing the mendacious thumps of "Nuis Octury", which he twists into a fever. But emblematically KR once more tempers. Closer "Ezerb Altren" conjures the image and emotion of an underground lake: depth, resonance, and total, glacial serenity.

Kangding Ray . The Pentaki Slopes
The tale of the mythic pentaki mountain has been engraved on a two-sided circular piece of wax.
the north face of the peak is steep, abrasive, and has been the subject of many legends in the region. it is said that whoever would manage to climb it would find a plateau, leading to a place called "the single source of truth".
considered as the ultimate goal by both psychedelic gurus and database optimization corporations, and as an ideal retirement destination for a couple of lost souls in search for coherence and objectivity, the source diffuses endless loops of haunted voices, apparently sampled from a discarded call center, running low on power, encouraging listeners to shorten cycles, deliver requests and improve user experience.
it is also said that anyone climbing from the south side would never reach the summit or find his way to the plateau, and would always end up on a lower altitude than where he started.
this topographical anomaly is probably the reason why the south face of the pentaki has always been favorited by locals, with its sunny weather and its luxurious vegetation flourishing along the soft downward slope, leading to a slow and peaceful end.
