About 'Kung Flu'

A stunning collection of 5 tunes from 23ID, solo project of Karol Bujalski from Warsaw. With a long background in experimental music as a youth and with Polish exp/elec combo 'Wrenched Dandies', and under this name since 2005, his music is intelligent and satisfying strongly rhythmic IDM. As the name suggests, it's infused with discordian sensibilities. It is often unsettling, like the strident opening to this work, but there are also passages of intense beauty. Finely balanced, in an unbalanced way.

The vivid artwork is by Bernard Luc.

I asked A few people what they thought about Kung Flu.

Maciej Lorenc, editor assistant of "Transvision Magazine" said,
"Extremely weird, experimental IDM, highly recommended to all lovers of altered states"

Jason from Rag & Bone Records said,
Its a very interesting in depth rewireing of disparate dark elements. I like the glitchy breakcore-esque vibe to it."

DJ Dellamorte of Codex Machine and Radio Spiritpalnts said,
"Charmingly original and originally charming electronica. I especially love the old-school-raver-in-blender vibes of Bird Flu."

Louise Kattenhorn, producer at BBC Radio One said,
"At once beautiful and sinister, it's unnerving music, dark old skool rave and electronic loveliness warped by swarms of robotic insects."
