Quick Hit: Kai Otten

January 10, 2019

Kai Otten – Camper Mode. Flamenco meets electro beats with playful flourishes: one of the most flamenco-heavy tracks is titled “Flamingo.” The work sounds exotic and adventurous without being too aggressive–there’s a relaxed confidence to the work that gives it a mature, accessible nature. There are some more pensive moments as well, such as the low-key “Colores de Mediterana” and the new-age-esque reverie of “In Clouds.”

Overall, these are hopeful, good-natured, pleasantly developed tracks to relax with. Those interested in electro should start with “Count of Berg,” while those interested in classical stylings (check that piano!) should start with the title track. Those interested in flamenco or guitar can pick anything and go for it. —Stephen Carradini
