The Enlightenment Machine

by Khan

THE ENLIGHTENMENT - MACHINE by KHAN, who lays smoky bongos under songs out of dreams, as it were the most normal thing in the world. Khan comes with a specific yet very free model for understanding music in an album format: novel-like, clear-cut, scattered, lovestruck. Likewise, on both records, the machines support the feelings, the instruments the voices, and the songs the tracks. The eternal spinning of the turntable, boring into the future like a helix. These locked grooves serve as the basis of all the tracks on Khan’s new album. They contain dense dub echoes, live percussions, deep sub-basses and the ghostly cello of New York guest musician Julia Kent.
