Mystical, desolate, resounding and experimental: these are the multinational wails of the sixteen strong collaborators on Kinlaw’s WELD
. Shouty rap, punktronics and crunchy textures reign supreme. It’s a wild ride. Hailing from a small Dorset town the producer, now based in Bristol, is highly collaborative and his latest album reaches from across Bristol, Palestine, Togo and Uganda. National boundaries are skipped over easily in this global-facing noise album that borrows from the pagan drumming traditions of the British isles and the lilting quality of Moroccan music in Dali de Saint Paul’s vocal drones.
