Belfast-born, Rotterdam-based Kessler continues to showcase his forward thinking and genre defying aesthetic usually by merging immersive breaks and bass-driven samples. Over the past few years, the young Irishman has gained a reputation for his tough and diverse sets, earning him a residency with Manchester-based Limbo Radio, regular slots at AVA Festival, a stand out set at Berlin’s HÖR and the title of one to watch by Four Four Mag. Drawing influence from the likes of Ilian Tape, R&S and Hessle Audio, his sound has adopted a ‘take no prisoner attitude’ and it is no different for his forthcoming release with Club Glow.
Returning for another instalment of their cassette series, AK Sports and Kessler join forces, heading up one side of the record each. Providing a formidable array of sonics, Kessler showcases nine tracks of breakbeat wizardry including this premiere “Third Eye” – an undeniably hard yet tuneful breakbeat cut that flutters across the dancefloor with addictive percussive elements broken up by dream-like vocal samples that make you go check yourself. Giving a sense of what to expect from the release, Kessler continues to ascend new heights and this forthcoming release on Club Glow shows exactly why.
“Club Glow Vol. 3” is out June 25th and is available to pre-order from Bandcamp.
