KMRU´s new album ¨Peel¨ is out now on Edititos Mego.

Peel is KMRU´s debut in Editions Mego, a six-piece work in which he mixes " field recordings and electronics that unravel at a slow and repetitive rate to expose a rich tapestry of sound that has been revered for its ability to cross borders with a deep stream of emotional content. "

The album was written during his trip to Montreal in March where he played at the Mutek Festival, as well as the journey back to Nairobi before borders closed for lockdown.

KMRU's new mix online for Open Editions / British Earways

Unseen Objects

KMRU

Joseph Kamaru (aka KMRU) is a DJ and producer based in Kenya. Although an active participant on the Nairobi electronic music scene, he is less known in the UK. Let’s hope that’s about to change...

His programme for British Earways, ‘Unseen Objects’, will be an unwinding, ever evolving, body of work that meanders between the real and imaginary. Field recordings made in his home town (as well as locations as far flung as St Petersburg and Berlin) are threaded on a chain of ambient events that suspend actuality: somewhat in the manner of a score for a film that will never be made.

Bringing to mind the philosophical conundrum about whether a falling tree in a forest makes a sound as it crashes to the ground if no one is present to hear it, ‘Unseen Objects’ raises a metaphysical question about unperceived existence. To invert the maxim that ‘to be is to be perceived’, KMRU’s redolent synth improvisations and eavesdropping on everyday life, once heard, bring a whole other world into precise existence.
