Off-Key Limited is a new subsiduary label of Off-Key Industries whose aim is to give exposure to new artists alongside established producers and to bring a wider range of genres with less of a focus on the dancefloor. Each release will be strictly limited and will not be repressed. We start by raiding the Off-Key vaults to unleash a series of releases entitled 'The Dust Off', featuring material written in the Off-Key studio over the years by Matt O'Brien and various collaborators and associates.
Matt kicks off the EP with 'A New Page Turns', a 120 bpm dubby house cut driven by a low slung rhythm and analog stabs dripping in reverb, overlayed with a melodica riff which calls to mind the smokey refrains of Augustus Pablo. Next up is 'Thw Whole Your In' by newcomer Minor Planets, a beatless slice of electronica whose understated melodies conjure up thoughts of late summer evenings of times gone by.
On the flip, O'Brien and Gates combine under the artist name Kimble to bring you 'Epiphany', led by a shimmering melody underpinned with haunting strings which combine to form an electro track of rare beauty. This diverse EP is completed with Minor Planets' second contribution, 'In A Hole', a drum n bass track with a disjointed, skeletal rhythm, sub bass drops and fragile, melancholy melody.
