"Kibuka is a new project from sound mastermind Dean Dennis, formerly of Clock DVA and, more recently, Nohno. A logical successor to the latter's "Metropolis" (2006), Kibuka's "Dystopia" takes the sumptuous bass and retro-electronic, tech-ambient feel of that pithy release and articulates it further, fleshing out sharp percussion and puffed-up pads to where the grooves feel totally intuitive and the production bathes in it's own eloquence. Deliberately thin-sounding electronics are paired with meaty bass layering, accented with melodic ambiences, then splashed with an array of vocal samples. The tracks are psychedelic and slippery, replete with complex rhythms and jazz-infused constructs, and together settle into a locked-in vibe. In short, "Dystopia" is an extension of the best ambient techno of the last couple decades, with nods to such genre stalwarts as Orbital, Meat Beat Manifesto, Freaky Chakra, and The Black Dog..........."

An aural landscape that at once washes over you and propels you with it's innovative baselines and rhythms" Bas NL: "It's been a while since i did a blog on a CD; but this first release by Dean Dennis and Snook under the moniker Kibuka definitely needs attention! After prolific co-operation in bands like Clock DVA, T.A.G.C, a solo project Nohno it is now in Kibuka that another realm is entered. With Snook the work's turned to a more cerebral and mellow area compared to earlier releases. The music on this first release 'Dystopia' is a stunning mix of Dubstep, Jazz and electronics. Like earlier work it still has the hunting chase feel by the on-going rhythms and careful panning of short and well chosen sound snippets..... Audio CD High quality digipac 16 tracks 76 minutes.
