    One of the most engrossing UK electronic albums to land in 2022.

    Together, Dom Maker and Kai Campos are something truly special. Apart, they still sound pretty damn talented, which makes this diversion a welcome one as the group work towards their next grand statement.

    MK 3.5: Die Cuts City Planning is diverse, lively and mostly encouraging.

    ‘MK 3.5’ is an often unwieldy and curiously warming project that sees both contributors embrace discomfort in their art.

    Apart from "Zone 1 (24 Hours)," the selections are generally brief and concise, and the shortest ones sometimes feel like sketches that could've been developed further. Still, the techno side of Mount Kimbie is just as creative as the pop/R&B/hip-hop side, and both halves of MK 3.5 contain several gems.

    Die Cut / City Planning feels like a record without a center of gravity, no matter how enjoyable the drifting may be.

    City Planning certainly conjures the feeling of a commute into a sprawling metropolis, while Die Cuts is a supple collage of contrasting voices. But, sadly, neither will have you wishing you could listen to everything again.
