you are



On this most historic of days, I thought I'd give you something with a bit of oration in it. Inspired by our new president and his predecessors? Goddamn right I am.

"You Are..." is the first single from the new Kenny Larkin album on Planet E. Channeling Ernestus and von Oswald in terms of percussive gestures, Larkin utilizes chordal octave changes and EQs to create much of the drama in the track, but it is the vocal bits that really give the track something different-- it is almost as if you are transported to the United Church of Techno whilst listening to this track, and at 134 bpm, it certainly allows plenty room for dancing. Great stuff from one of the best producers working today-- I only wonder why the lovely Larkin (who is quite the eye candy, indeed) never comes up to San Francisco from West Hollywood? Baby, it's a five hour drive and a shorter plane ride! Grace us with your presence!

Kenny Larkin- You Are...

Tomorrow, thinking something that you would never expect....
