Having enjoyed a little time off from releasing music, David Kennedy returns with a two-tracker on his Pearson Sound imprint. While flipside "Tsunan Sun" is naturally impressive, it's A-side "XLB" that everyone's been talking about. It's not hard to see why. After opening with sustained moody notes and gently pulsing electronics, the track builds into an intoxicating techno thumper, complete with alternately rising and falling synth lines, thunderous sub-bass, and a killer combination of stomping kick-drums, snappy snares, and seemingly relentless drum machine handclaps. Even by his standards, it's something of a colossal beast... and that's saying something.
