Slovenian up-and-comer Nejc Nedok, better known as K.E.N.Y.U., is a name you will probably begin to hear more frequently in the techno scene. Before Nejc started producing electronic music he was already a skilled musician, deciding early in his life to attend music school, specifically for violin. Now it’s 2010, and K.E.N.Y.U. has a new production titled Filth Line, released on Roman Zawodny’s record label MHR-HRD, a label that is considered one of today’s leading producers of techno music in the US.
Now it’s time to hit play and listen. Right from the intro, K.E.N.Y.U.’s Filth Line commands your attention with its analogue bass synth, double kicks and breakbeats, pushing and pulling your emotions so much you just can’t help but wanna dance. At around 1:20 K.E.N.Y.U. throws us into a sweeping deep break that I absolutely love. This track is dark, dirty, and just straight up vicious. It features an incredible collection of sound bites, vocal samples, a funky, unpredictable bassline, all mixed in with a bit of an electro edge.
K.E.N.Y.U. is one of those rare artists who stretches the boundaries of his genre. His attention to detail in his productions are right on target, and it is clear that he strives for perfection. Keep your ears open for more from K.E.N.Y.U. and upcoming productions from MHR-HRD.
