Kurtiss is a shadowy and enigmatic figure working on the boundaries of civilization. A sporadic figure on the House music scene with eccentric habits, Kurtiss’ music is a rarified sonic experience for those who seek it out. The American artist is hard to pin down and his music is a tantalizing little secret only for adept diggers who appreciate the style of Hi-Def House music that the artist has cultivated. Although he’s a known Soundcloud fixture, he’s only put out a handful of digital singles as Curtis Vodka in the past, with Mutual Intentions facilitating his latest and immortalizing his music on their next set of releases.

It’s an attitude that he lays bare on this rare contribution to the physical, recorded format for Mutual Intentions on ‘The Curtis Vodka EP’. The EP weaves classic House music influences through a penchant for vintage sound machines and arrangements that evoke a solemn air. Elements of Gospel and New York’s deeper inclinations in House music seep through his sound as archived vocal samples and noisy machines give his work its defining character.

Glistening keys and strings that slither through airy textures create dense aural experiences on ‘The Curtis Vodka EP’, calling to mind the musical masterpieces of House music’s golden era when the likes of Kerri Chandler and Masters At Work were producing some of their best work. Kurtiss adopts song-based progressions with melodies and harmonies that resolve through a fantastic sonic emulsion between samples and synthesizers. A specter of a vocal or an artificial birdcall from a loon trapped inside an Emax opens a direct link between Kutiss’ alien obsessions and a dance floor on terra firma, between machine music and the mysticisms of the soul.

Curtis Vodka is the artist’s first official release for the best part of a decade, with Mutual Intentions sealing the artist’s distinctive sound in wax with this EP and the accompanying ’Tributes & Remixes’ 12-inch.
