Going to see Flume at the 9:30 Club tonight or tomorrow? Then get there early to check out Silas Moldenhawer and Jonas Kenton, the Copenhagen duo known as Kenton Slash Demon, who are opening for Flume both nights.
Today, Kenton Slash Demon are dropping an EP of remixes for their latest single, “Peace,” via Future Classic. “Peace” is the latest in a string of singles on Future Classic from Kenton Slash Demon, who also recently have released the Harpe/Syko and TT/Dok EPs.
Watch the official music video for “Peace” by Kenton Slash Demon on YouTube:
Said Kenton Slash Demon of “Peace,” “We wanted to create something that sounded futuristic but classic at the same time. The drums have some ‘70s rock and disco references to them but with a modern club music punch combined with vocals that almost sound alien. It’s definitely the most pop-ish thing we’ve done as Kenton Slash Demon so far but we feel that crafting music that sticks out from more classic underground club tracks is also a part of our DNA. It’s dance music but too slow to really work in a classic club environment and that’s what we really liked about it — that it places itself between being a ‘song’ and a club track.”
After performing at the 9:30 Club, the duo go on to Charlottesville, Virginia, and Atlanta in a string of sold-out shows before going to the United Kingdom for Bestival. So show up early and dance!
