Marcel Fengler – Kyu [Index Marcel Fengler]

Marcel Fengler returns to his IMF imprint with three new tracks charting the diverse musical moods defined by his 2013 debut album Fokus. Originally slated for an Ostgut Ton release, the tracks now find their home on Fengler's own label to mark the beginning of the post-Ostgut chapter in his career. With Kyu laid out on the A-side, this new 12" starts off with a delicate yet muscular floor-pleaser its subtle 44 rhythm is counteracted by lush claps on 24, but the true finesse comes in form of its varying rhythmic details, crisp hi-hats and underlying, subtle melodies, most notably the twirling organ trills, sustained synth pads and alienated shout on B1 picks up on these introverted and adoring musical moods with more organic bell percussion and swelling synth layers adding a more cinematic touch to the complex rhythm patternsthen pausing for a short dreamy break, gaining speed again before culminating in a grand finale. Zen follows up with intimate string arrangements until Fengler varies the tone and tempo with tribalist percussion and a lush kick drum.
