Ferdinando Apicella aka Kernel Key adds to his extensive discography with 'Pass It On' backed with a remix by Sebastian Leger the release will drop on Italian imprint Loose Records this December. A sound engineer by trade, Apicella's work as Kernel Key is inspired by Detroit techno but sounds entirely his own man. Having released his first release on MKT Rec, a close affiliate of Loose, last year his productions are solidly growing in stature. 'Pass it On' not only marks Kernel Key's debut for Loose but also the first remix for the imprint from the irrepressible Sebastien Leger, whose version of 'Pass it On' opens the EP. Frenetic, swinging and massively infections, Leger's version is pure dancefloor mayhem and sees the revered producer inject fun and funk into the original. Kernel Key's original 'Pass It On' is relentless groove with short melodic loops and nagging bass doing all the required work while bizarre filtered keys cut through the track's nicely judged breakdown for maximum build. 'Lady Red' rounds off the EP with yet another squarely aimed dancefloor cut. As tight and urgent as 'Pass It On' but with slightly detuned stabs and a freakier feel, it's a peak time animal of a tune.
