Mount Kimbie is a British electronic music duo consisting of Dominic Maker and Kai Campos. They formed the group in London in 2008 and released their debut album Crooks & Lovers on 19 June 2010 in the UK to critical acclaim. Mount Kimbie are currently working on their second album which will be released on Warp Records.
Kai Campos is originally from St. Austell in Cornwall, while Dom Maker is from Brighton. They met at Southbank University in London, where Campos was having another go at university and Maker was studying film. They started making music together at a home studio in Peckham.
Arguably responsible for the term “post-dubstep”, the duo has released a series of EPs and their highly praised debut album Crooks & Lovers. The Guardian described the pair as “leading an exploratory breakaway from bass-heavy dubstep towards a lighter, hazier style of electronica rich with drowsy ambience and chopped-up found sounds.”
The band’s debut album, entitled Crooks and Lovers, was released on 19 June 2010 in the UK to critical acclaim, and achieved a 7.9 ADM Rating on review aggregator website AnyDecentMusic?.
At the end of 2010, Crooks & Lovers was included in over thirty ‘Best of 2010’ lists, including NME, Mixmag, DJ Magazine, Resident Advisor, Pitchfork Media, Drowned In Sound, Boomkat, FACT Rough Trade and Phonica Records. NME listed them at number 22 in their 30 Artists For 2011.
The pair are closely linked to friend, producer and BBC Sound of 2011 runner-up, James Blake. He has collaborated with them live and lent his skills to the remixing of “Maybes” which features on the Mount Kimbie EP Remixes Part 1, released 12 April 2010, as well as contributing elements to Crooks & Lovers.
Mount Kimbie have produced remixes for The Big Pink, Foals, The xx and Andreya Triana.
Mount Kimbie signed to Warp Records in June 2012.
