'Crisis' is the second LP from Natasha Kmeto.
In electronic music, you are usually either a singer or a producer; any attempts for singers to produce or for producers to sing usually have dire consequences and such attempts are often hastily quashed. For Natasha Kmeto the instant appeal is to sit in wonder at her rare dual talent. And it does not feel that either side suffers as a result. In fact if anything the each side of her work seems natural and complimentary.
This sex-fuelled LP is stunning. Strip away the cliché R'n'B vocals and you have the workings of some evocative and refined dubstep. Despite apparent similarities, I wouldn't make the easy claim of a female James Blake
- Kmeto's vibe feels much fuller and dance-floor worthy. Overall however this is an intimate and stripped back album.
Record Label 'Dropping Gems' really have dropped a gem here. The tragedy is that this will remain unashamedly underground. An intriguingly cool addition to any electronic music library.
