Product Description

Product Description

Once again Luke Vibert has delivered Rephlex a delectable slice of musical pleasure which unusually is singularly dedicated to the delights of disco music, and is arguably his most accessible record to date.

"I don’t think many people will believe it’s me who’s made it’" says Luke. "It doesn’t sound anything like me. Just simple disco grooves. It sounds live, but it’s all programmed to sound like old disco."

It might come as a bit of a shock after the rave-tastic and well received junglist anthems of 2003 as Amen Andrews or the acid-Tinged Yoseph album released on Warp records.

Luke’s inimitable take is stripped down like early house.Organic sounding but with a lush glowing contemporary electronic feel, all groovy handclaps, strings, cowbells, horns and creamy bass-lines, highly addictive and very fresh.

Review

Kerrier District is probably the best thing Luke Vibert has done to date -- dj Magazine April 2004

Pure joy from start to finish -- Uncut

Pure party music that charms from the opening libidinal cries -- wire

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended 22 Feb 2004
This is an excellent album that proves to me that there is still some great house music out there. If you have heard any of Metro Area's records then Kerrier District's sound is on a similar tip with its infectuous soulful groove and subtle disco undertones. I highly recommend this album to anyone who loves real house music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nu Skool Disco. 15 Jun 2004
By A Customer
After Metro Areas fantastic release last year I thought it would be a while for another follow up. So while waiting I managed to tarck this little beauty down. Think Metro Area with a huge dollop of cheese. Excellent Disco and every track a killer. As with Luke Viberts other releases you get the odd 303 bassline which add to the overall disco feel. This is an awesome 10 tracker which must be owned if you like Metro Area and that old Disco sound revamped for 2004. A must have.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's good, but its not Metro Area. 14 Jun 2004
By I don't have a pen name TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Good album, some good beats, loops, synths and keyboard stabs. I was drawn to this by comparisons to Metro Area. Clearly Luke Vibert has blantantly tried to emulate Geist and Jesrani's style. Yes, it is similar but for me it still doesn't touch Metro Area for technical excellence and dynamics. Still, nice to see this style of left-field house gaining popularity.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine work in disco 11 Aug 2005
By Vinnie C. - Published on Amazon.com
Kerrier District is Luke Vibert's (aka Wagon Christ, Plug, Amen Andrews) disco project released on Richard D. James' own Replex Records. You'll get everything out of Luke that we have come to expect, as well as some new tricks, in a surprisingly fresh disco outfit that fits in perfectly with the many sounds of Braindance. For those who are not so familiar with Vibert's sound, I'm sure you will find that Luke is a master with thick base lines, funky break beats, and an expert when it comes to finding and arranging samples (he could be the best). Just hearing the opening of this album is proof positive that you are in for an hour of great, upbeat disco hits, with it's loopy kicks and clicks, pulled hi-hats, sustained and delayed synth lines, and some of the funkiest base you've ever tried to polish the dance floor with you're a** to. I can't help but want to crank this album up in some kind of alcohol-friendly roller skating rink party with nothing around but beautiful ladies feeding me soft pretzels and good friends to share in the fun. Well, maybe I can help it. Okay, so maybe skating rinks are a little outdated, but you get the picture, right? I really like this album and I want to party to it.

For fans of Luke Vibert, or just great party music, I would definately check this album out. There's never a dull moment.

5.0 out of 5 stars alien vibes! 24 Jan 2005
By a_hermit - Published on Amazon.com
Kerrier District, a.k.a Luke Vibert, Wagon Christ, Plug, Amen Andrews e.t.c....

This is like the evolution of 'dance' music. Not 'electronic' music. Vibert never fails, this is original, eclectic, and fun.

For those of us tired of the same old melodies, expand your musical horizons. This is one of those albums you can just hit play and forget what track its on. I highly recommend this, and Anything by luke vibert/wagonchrist. This will restore your faith in the future of music. Whereas, other artists will use our love of music to make $$$, this is a musician that must express himself in this way. So if your concerned where electronic dance music is heading, this may be your road map.

As for the tracks, it starts out with the most alien dance track i've ever freaked to. It's like an organic marsian orchestra, complete with freaky voices going ooh oh oh oh, and of course the usual bumps and bass, claps and chessy rythym that reminds you of country square dancing for a second...vibert uses this for his drum palette.. and an eagle call that seemed to be turned into an electronic sound effect... only Napoleon Dynamite could dance and freak to this. The album continues to pulsate through the next few tracks, silhouettes and illogan are filled with mystifying rhythm and effects, these are obviously playful tracks. It's hard to not listen to the whole songs though because its never the same thing. You never know what sonic anomaly is around the corner!

New York is a serious track, I think it is a throwback to memories of earlier dance music... Yesco is a relaxing hummer, just listen to the rising instruments and vocals.. Negresco is another alien dance track, but when it breaks you will love it.

Squaredance seems to epitomize my notions of his quirky drum rhythms. This is how you square dance, Vibert style.

This album is like a spiritual awakening, just get up and dance to this and free yourself, every track will beg you to play with it. Movement isn't requested, it's required.

Just be careful your friends dont catch you dancing to this unless you want to give them a good laugh/scare.

3.0 out of 5 stars My kind of club music 16 May 2006
By IRate - Published on Amazon.com
Kerrier District pulls off a well made, hip update of disco pacing that does after some time become boring when the music revolves around that single tempo with uninspired sound clips guiding us through the shallow journey. Thankfully, most tracks are not like that, as Luke Vibert once again attests to the fact that he is one of the only artist's who can make decent art in an overwhelmingly shallow and cheesily produced genre. When the tracks work best is the same case as with any other project of his- when he is truly trying to step outside of himself as a house artist, utilizing his slick production skills and wonderful keyboard approach in ways that do more then just make you want to get up and dance, or at least make you want to articulate your dance patterns that much more specificly to reflect the nature of this intellegent dancesmith.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kerrier District - Luke Vibert 24 Oct 2005
By uncut76 - Published on Amazon.com
What can I say, Kerrier District is the perfect house record. Deep grooves, distinct lack of boring sections, everything's balanced right, lush keyboards...some disturbing bass frequencies...I would recommend this even if you don't like house music, per se. It's just a really well crafted album.
3.0 out of 5 stars Dancey 12 April 2014

Luke Vibert's alter-ego/music identity Kerrier District is faster paced and more musical that Luke Vibert and Wagon Christ. Still a worthy album.
