Having released music under various aliases over the last decade – most
famously as Renegades Of Jazz, as well as recent incarnation Dem Juju Poets
and his Latin outfit Mankoora – celebrated producer and DJ, David Hanke, has
gone back to his blissful electronic roots with his latest project, Keno.
Hanke's love for the early 21st Century downtempo music, as is apparent when
you listen to this, his debut under the Keno moniker, entitled “Around The Corne”.
It’s far from simply early ‘noughties’ nostalgia though, as his keen contemporary
ear adds a modern touch to the proceedings.
Shuffling beats combine with lush guitars on the opening title track to life affirming
effect. Elsewhere, “Merrythought” continues the theme of the album opener, this
time indulging in sweeping string arrangements and sprightly keys. Other
highlights include the beautiful “What Remains” with its soulful vocal snippets and
building, jazz influenced piano refrain.
“All Else By Far” is another standout moment, where the drums take center
stage, giving the cut more of an instrumental hip-hop aesthetic; whereas
“Kingsley” has a more mysterious charm, interweaving spoken word samples and
keyboard stabs whilst still keeping the sound of the drum to the fore.
The haunting “Elwood” sets the scene with ominous strings before eerie guitars
make way for some bold brass stabs and once again we return to those spooky
strings that are the centerpiece of this atmospheric cut. “Spines and Rays”, in
contrast, has something of a more urgent, driving feel as lumbering basslines
battle with vigorous percussion and driving drums. Album closer, “Shadowlights”,
though is simply a thing of beauty and serenity – the perfect climax to an album
that might just be your soundtrack to many years to come. You just never know
what’s lurking around the corner…
