Detroit Techno Bass pioneer DJ Di'jital and Kraftjerkz label boss extraordinaire Kid Ginseng, team up to bring you a brand new label and its first vinyl release called "Audio Analysis".
Focusing on the DJ battle tools format, new imprint KJDA will be delivering the heat to any and all DJ's, straight from the minds of two of the most dedicated producers in the scene. As stated on the label's Bandcamp page, KJDA is: "Inspired by Electro DJ's who scratch. The keywords are visceral rhythm".
Audio Analysis I feel, should be a welcomed title in anyone's bag, especially because while it is true the purpose behind this release and its label is to serve DJ's primarily with battle tools, the tracks on this release actually work quite well on their own for normal mixing and long rideouts also.
Songs like the remastered version of DJ Di'jital's "Revenge"; a reworking of "Di'jital's Revenge" from his 2002 release of the same name on Twilight 76 Records, is a throwback to his classic signature sound from the 90's when he got his starts on iconic label Direct Beat, and became one of the most sought after artists from the era. Rude Electro beats, fierce and some would say fearsome basslines, that along with intelligent sampling and sequencing, form into a robotic stampede that will leave dancefloors ablaze! And that's just one tune, look out for the other two cuts on this record by Di'jital that are a couple of other Electro torpedoes ready for deployment.
Kid Ginseng on the other hand, is a master megamixer, and so it would come as no surprise that his style on the song "Bang The Boom" fuses together parts from one of the greatest club hits, "Just Give The DJ A Break by Dynamix II, with his own special palette of android Electro Funk flavors and styles. "Roller Skate Girl", his other contribution to this EP, does surprise a bit as the authentic and rather frantic Detroit vibes ooze from every seam of this futuristic Ghetto Tech joint, masterfully produced by one of NYC's most devoted purveyors of the Electro sound.
