“14 Tracks: The Unheimlich Manoeuvres of Kareem”

Since 1996 Berlin's Kareem has forged a steely, blackened body of work spanning Industrial Techno, Hip Hop and Drone synonymous with his Zhark Recordings imprint. After nearly half a decade of inaction, we welcome his imminent return to the underground with a collection of standout moments spanning ten years of diverse yet uncompromising work. In Hip Hop mode, the 'Battlefield' and 'Neoclassical' mini-LPs strongly reference the work of RZA and Mobb Deep's Havoc with their minimal and broodingly cinematic feel, best heard on 'Curfew' which features a little known appearance from Paul St. Hilaire aka Tikiman. Arguably, his most definitive work is in the Techno realm. Girder-strength, pneumatic pounders such as 'Genesis' and the aquatic pulsations of 'Escape From NY' set his sound with a resolutely gloomy and dystopian mood, but it's his latter day productions - the infernal tension of 'Gate' and the bone-snapping swing of 'Surgoo' - which assert his rarified position among Berlin's Industrial architects. If you're feeling the recent productions of Regis, Vatican Shadow, Pete Swanson or Ancient Methods, you're bound to connect on some level with this selection.
