Kyle Hall – From Joy [WO018K]

Wild Oats presents the triple LP entitled From Joy by Kyle Hall. The title is derived from the idea of finding a way to live life in a state of presence; detaching oneself from the mental, self imposed narratives echoed by society’s traditions and judgement. We as people tend to be at our most honest and present in our childhood, so in some ways From Joy serves as a mechanism and reminder to return to one’s youthful energetic state. The 8- track album, all produced before 2010, is a homage to where Kyle lived at the time in his father’s basement on the westside of Detroit on Joy Rd.

KMFH – The Boat Party [WO013K]

Wild Oats is proud to present the KMFH debut album The Boat Party. After a year of collaborative releases, Kyle Hall, under the alias KMFH, has produced a debut album; a fusion of original work, sample tracks, and raw edits. The Boat Party album artwork pokes fun at European summer boat parties and juxtaposes the destitute state of Detroit and its recent proneness to discarded luxury in financial crises. Mainly, the inability to leave and the sometimes pleasant isolation of a boat party is what the album exudes. The listener has a certain commitment to the material which definitely has its place on the dance floor. You can find tracks that have soulful, funky, and organic feels, while others have a more abstract, mechanical, and robotic sentiments. The Boat Party was carefully constructed which makes the album a cohesive mix of soulful etherealness and roughly raw sounds; KMFH’s cueing into the true aspects of Detroit.

Funkineven – Cha / Dracula [APRON004]

https://objectstore.true.nl/rushhourrecords:files/styles/cover_large/storage-api-public/covers/67/67099.jpg?itok=0YSFWNr2

Dope new 12″  from Funkinevil produced with Kyle Hall. The two tracks on it make for a stylistic about-turn from the TV theme funk of the last Apron release Chips & Sweets, “Dracula” is the kind of stuttering 303 acid jam FunkinEven is an expert of, reminiscent of the brilliant “Roland’s Jam”, while “Cha!” is a loose-limbed slice of proto-techno which goes heavy on the unfiltered analogue bass, driven forward with lolloping drum machine beats.

Delphic – Doubt [PM001]

disc

Another unlikely yet highly successful remix excursion for Delphic, picking up an uber-limited one-sided rerub from Detroit’s Kyle Hall. There’s practically no trace of the original to be heard, just a damn fine exhibition of Motor City techniques, shaking slightly broken drums under filtered and flanged keys, locking into a sweetly sensual loop of house magic.
