A welcome change of pace from the L.I.E.S. camp. Those looking for the usual lo-fi techno or hardware house might want to look elsewhere in the catalog as KWC 92 switches it up with lush soundscapes and beats on Dreamed Of The Walled City. Produced by Stockholm's Samo DJ (who's appeared on a L.I.E.S. Black 12" in 2012) and Max Stenerudh as a conceptual soundtrack themed around Kowloon City, Hong Kong, the OST is filled with gorgeous atmospherics, tense orchestral moments, and exotic beats. Check the majestic opener "Dreaming Of You," the city beats of "Night Drive" and "Macau Ferry Terminal," and the brilliant title track for a taste. Comes in full pic sleeve. Stand-out L.I.E.S. release that warrants repeat listens. Recommended.
