kava kon Tiki for the Atomic Age (LP, £12.50)label: Dionysus Records
In 2004, Nels Truesdell and Bob Kress formed Kava Kon as a magical escape from the urban decay surrounding them in their former home city of Detroit. The duo created a new form of music combining the modern with the primitive; electronica and exotica! Kava Konís music is influenced by the classic exotica sound of Martin Denny, Arthur Lyman and Bob Drasnin, obscure thrift store vinyl, Hollywood B-movie soundtracks of the Ď50s and Ď60s, dub pioneers of Jamaica such as King Tubby, Scientist and Lee "Scratch" Perry and early Detroit techno sounds of Juan Atkins, Drexciya and Jeff Mills.
