Moore Kismet realizes their boundless potential on debut LP, ‘UNIVERSE’
They’ve been called a wunderkind before—but Moore Kismet has never really subscribed to labels, and, producing in a manner far more advanced than their age would suggest, perhaps the only word adequate to describe Kismet now is… special.
The rising producer, named Dancing Astronaut‘s Breakout Artist in 2020, has handed in a brilliantly composed 17-track debut album, UNIVERSE, representing a song for each year of the young producer’s life. Cementing them as one of dance music’s brightest torch carriers of the moment, Kismet’s UNIVERSE plays like a sprawling tapestry that reflects the emerging star’s developing sonic palate—a journey through thundering, textured bass breaks tempered by airy pockets of beaming synthwork. Traversing through tidal waves and calmatives reprieves, Moore Kismet’s introductory studio album captures all of the auditory diversity that has made Kismet such a magnetizing talent to watch.
The long-awaited album, expertly delivered as a steady stream of singles over more than a year, comes together as a comprehensive collection of market-tested singles that paints a comprehensive play-by-play of Kismet’s come up over the last 18 months. And that’s to say nothing of becoming one of the youngest performers to ever play EDC Las Vegas, Tomorrowland, along with tentpole performances at Coachella‘s DoLab and Ultra Music Festival in the same timespan.
One listen to UNIVERSE, and it is clear the world is in the palm of Moore Kismet’s hand. The LP signals to boundless growth still ahead for its young, bright-eyed producer, while perhaps somewhat idealistically, pointing to a very bright future ahead for electronic music as a broader whole.
