Mount Kimbie have revealed a new double album ‘MK 3.5: Die Cuts | City Planning’ is on the way, accompanying the announcement with a three-track single.
The forthcoming project, which sees the duo of Dom Maker and Kai Campos work on separate albums under the name of Mount Kimbie, will be out November 4 via Warp Records.
Today, three tracks have been released which include previews from the album. ‘f1 racer’ featuring Kučka, ‘Zone 1 (24 Hours)’ and bonus track ‘locked in’ with Maxo Kream and Pa Salieu.
On the duo’s Instagram they posted an image of them each holding their half of the double able with the caption: “Over the last 2 years or so, we’ve been working on music separately, in our studios in London and Los Angeles. This record is a collection of collaborations and solo productions that were made during that time.”
Breaking down both sides the statement continues: “City Planning produced by Kai is a collection of Kai’s solo tracks from the last couple of years. It started as a more club focused record but slowly changed into something a bit weirder and more improvisational, that was influenced by a range of club music as well as more physical textures.
“‘Die Cuts’, produced by Dom, is a collage of productions featuring some of his close friends and collaborators out in Los Angeles – inc features from Danny Brown, KeiyaA, Wiki, Liv.e, James Blake, Nomi, Choker, Slowthai, Kučka, Reggie.”
Earlier this month, the album was teased with the release of four tracks: ‘in your eyes’ with slowthai and Danny Brown, ‘a deities encore’ with Liv.e, ‘Q’ and ‘Quartz’.
‘MK 3.5: Die Cuts | City Planning’ is available to pre-order here. Watch the music video for ‘f1 racer’ below.
