Oxymoronic music that manages to sound slow and crippled but at the same time extremely groovy, rough and minimalistic while still being vividly melodic, violently electronic and painfully humane at heart. Soundscapes that are playful at times, but never humoristic.
The thing that separates DKSTR’s take on modern R&B from the rest of the world lies somehow in his Finno-Ugric mentality. While the rhythmical structures of his Anglo American colleagues simulate the act of ridin’ or grindin’, DKSTR’s style resembles more cross-country skiing or wading through a wet marsh.
Genius or retarded?
