Culross Close - Forgotten OnesEsencia Records
Anthony Kieron, better known as K15 is firmly entrenched as a premiere producer of soul and house. With his London based quintet Culross Close he's starting to stretch out as a musician as well. The six track ep "Forgotten Ones" is a myriad of Cosmic compositions that transcend genres. The disc begins with the heavenly keys of "Fractured" a soothing intro that's a precursor for what lies ahead. The title track, one of the highlights here is filled with blissful vocal harmonies. Kieron's rhythmic rhodes are complimented by enchanting cymbals from drummer May Goode. "The Tiniest Lights Still Shine" is another winner. It's an infectious tune with a bass n drum groove with Nathaniel Jiddu's spacey moog synths on top of it. This is an inspiring and imaginative piece of work that will transport you to a spiritual mental space. The only quibble is there's only twenty five minutes of music here but essential listening nonetheless. We've come to expect nothing less than from Kieron and this is no exception.
