Aussie composer KREB shows a solid ability to craft instro themes that could be put to a variety of uses. His formula: each composition’s moody, evocative intro is soon injected with a steady beat that develops in complexity. The sad, melancholy march “The Dude Gambler” could serve as a foundation for someone to rap/flow over, conveying tales of sorrow and hard times. Though not as coherent, we dig “Devil in the Corner” for its unique sounds (exchoplexed keys, neo-horns, synth-claps, an air-raid siren) and symphonic grandeur. We were less taken with the simple synth exhalations of “Locomotive,” though this one could be just right for an EDM fest’s chill-down chamber.
