A jittery goldmine of trippy tracks and dreamy downtempo textures
ClashMusic Dj Mix Podcast - Kelpe

Enchanting electronica producer Kelpe unveils the workings of a colourfully wonky mind in this week’s Clash DJ podcast.

London-based Kelpe – Kel McKeown – has been steadily crafting his enticing audio tapestries since 2003, fusing together crushed electronica with mangled beats, glitchy analogue washes and occasional dancier meanderings, constantly staying ahead of his contemporaries thanks to a refusal to sit still sound-wise and some truly creative tendencies, which are sure to be further flexed on his recently launched DRUT label.

His Clash mix is a jittery goldmine of trippy tracks and dreamy downtempo textures, with melted synth chords, retro-futurist electronica, a few wayward hip hop beats and just a dash of fuzzy techno ready to simultaneously soothe and juggle your brain, featuring sounds from Pursuit Grooves, Mr Beatnick, Bambooman and Claude Speeed.

Kelpe’s ‘Answered’ EP is out on 15 April on DRUT Records. Kelpe will be playing live at London’s Koko on 20 April, as part of a Soundcrash event featuring Clark and Daedelus.
