It’s on like Donkey Kong! More new music from Dntel, who’s unloaded two new songs on SoundCloud. The first, “Kids,” is a minimal techno stab, loopy and indulgent. There’s an evolving sound narrative in the song though, so loops don’t have to mean repetitive sounds. “Threaper” features a similar warbly approach as his recently released song “Cave Mouth,” but this also uses an 8-bit chiptune sound to give it an almost retro video game soundtrack appeal. The bigger question here is -- why is all of this music being made accessible now? Jimmy Tamborello spoke of a back catalog of music in a Red Bull Music Academy interview, so I have to wonder if there’s a full album release in the future, or if he’s just putting the music out there.
