Ric Niels & Kabi (AR) – Kimica [Replug]

5 min read

Cid Inc's Replug Records rounds out the year by welcoming Ric Niels & Kabi (AR) to the label for a new EP. Hailing from Argentina, Ric Niels has enjoyed a steady rise since first emerging just over two years ago. His progressive sound has been a delight for both clubbers and headphone aficionado’s alike, while the genre’s premiere tastemakers in Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren and Guy J have championed his work along the way. Similarly, top tier labels such as Armadillo, Clubsonica, Deepwibe Underground, Mango Alley and The Soundgarden have served as landing spots for Ric’s transcendent sound. Meanwhile, Buenos Aires resident Kabi has enjoyed a similar rise to prominence since first emerging in 2019. Clubsonica Records, Juicebox Music, Plattenbank and The Soundgarden quickly became vehicles for Kabi's dreamy, club-effective style; with Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren, Guy J and Guy Mantzur all becoming supporters of his work. Tipped as two of the progressive scene's most promising new talents, Ric and Kabi now combine their extensive forces for a much anticipated Replug debut entitled 'Kimica'.

Title track ‘Kimica’ lands with a resounding thump, as big rolling grooves and wavy lines make for a smooth hip swinging energy. Gentle overlays, cosmic effects and percolating arps advance the narrative, keeping rhythm locked while energy continues to multiply leading into the break. Tension peaks here with crunchy modulation and sweeping noise uniting in a vibrant vortex of corrosive beauty, as the groove re-engages for a thrilling finale.

The companion piece ‘Mutant’ continues the pure progressive lean of the release with chirpy chord stabs and trippy effects blanketing a character-rich capsizing groove. A touch more introspective than its predecessor, misty sonics provide a shapeshifting backdrop for fuzzy arps and pristine percussion to drive energy into a melodic break. The intuitive musical dialogue held between the duo is impressive across the centrepiece, as textural coaxes and collapsing waves of light emerge for moments of chaotic tranquility, perfectly setting the stage for a groove-centric finale. A fitting conclusion to an excellent first-time partnership from Ric Niels and Kabi (AR), one where tasteful execution delivers an oversized emotional response. Highly recommended.
