It’s becoming a rarer and rarer thing nowadays, especially in this fast growing, overcrowded world of music, to find well educated musicians with the ability to read music and play instruments. Kenny Leaven (real name Andreas Braun), however, is one of the few. Besides running his own label Elenore Records since 2009, founding and organising Erfurts Bayou Festival, he is still producing quality music. Kenny’s new EP for Souvenir keeps in line with his unique, interstellar sound; two quirky, eccentric cosmic cuts which stand unparalleled by other producers right now. Both tracks on the single recall something of the Balearic euphoria of Todd Terje’s recent output as well as making humble references to the pumping analogue bass of Italo and more rigid early 80s electronic explorations. Step on board and prepare yourself for an interplanetary, cosmic journey through music history, expertly examined through a modern lens.
