A TAV Essential Listening Album.

Mount Kimbie is an English electronic music duo consisting of Dominic Maker and Kai Campos. They formed the group in London in 2008 and released their debut album Crooks & Lovers in 2010 to critical acclaim, adding a percussive and experimental edge to the then current class of post-dubstep pioneers.

Arguably responsible for the term "post-dubstep", at the end of 2010, Crooks & Lovers was included in over thirty 'Best of 2010' lists, including NME, Mixmag, DJ Magazine, Resident Advisor, Pitchfork Media, Drowned In Sound, Boomkat, FACT,Rough Trade and Phonica Records. NME listed them at number 22 in their 30 Artists For 2011

The pair are closely linked to friend, producer and BBC Sound of 2011 runner-up, James Blake. He has collaborated with them livand lent his skills to the remixing of "Maybes" which features on the Mount Kimbie EP Remixes Part 1, released April 2010 as well as contributing elements to Crooks & Lovers. - Wiki

“'Crooks & Lovers' is a beautifully well constructed album, tightly wound and extremely intimate. Armed with found r'n'b vocal snippets, syncopated shuffling beats, hypnotic acoustic guitar twangs and jazz arrangements and woozy underwater atmospherics the duo create a unique organic sound.... The band’s sound and response to the dubstep moment is very much their own. Sceneless and untethered from etiquette and genre codes, ‘Crooks & Lovers’ floats through dubstep and hip-hop, jazz, techno and ambient, post-rock, UK garage and film scores to startling effect.” - SoundsoftheUniverse.com
