When I saw that Dropping Gems would me releasing Natasha Kmeto‘s second album, Crisis, I smiled. Such a perfect name for a label to be releasing the work from a shining example of how the electronic music scene is devleoping. We’ve covered Natasha’s work before, and love that a) more females are getting the proper recognition, and b) Natasha does so without having to sell sex or herself. She’s making it plain like an indie artist who happens to create intriguingly emotional electronic music.
On “Idiot Proof,” the first glimpse of her new project, Kmeto, who sings and produces her material, crafts a captivating blend of slick lyrics over a brooding rhythm, which is made more for getting lost to than for putting either of your hands in the air. Beautiful sounds, regardless.
