London producer Kelpe has built himself a reputation for heavily textured slant on instrumental beats, first surfacing on DC Recordings and releasing three LPs and numerous singles through the iconic label run by J Saul Kane. More recently found impressing for the likes of Black Acre and Svetlana Industries, Kelpe signals a sea change with the launch of DRUT Records, his own label through which he will release a new album, cannily titled Fourth: The Golden Eagle later this summer. DRUT opts for a soft launch with this three track Answered 12? which sets the tone nicely for Kelpe's new LP and arrives just as the first rays of spring sunshine beam through the Juno office. Listen to the title track and it's no mere coincidence, a breezy beataholic's delight that feels like fidgety, unstable cousin to FaltyDL's recent ubiquitous number "Straight & Arrow".
