The band has a mini-album called Kick Drunk Love due out in February 2016.
These four friends all have roots in San Francisco's house and techno scene, but nowadays call Berlin home. Aside from each artist's solo pursuits, there's already been some collaborations among them: Byallo, Scott and Dave Aju, real name Marc David Barrite, have their own three-way project, Something Something Something. Byallo's Bad Animal label has put out tracks from Scott and Smith, to name a few common connections.
Now, they've joined together as KAMM, resulting in a mini-album called Kick Drunk Love that will come on vinyl and digital formats through Marcel Vogel's Amsterdam-based Intimate Friends imprint. Described in a press release as being influenced by the artists' "love of early '90s MoWax era laid-back beats," it features Barrite on lead vocals (with Byallo and Scott also contributing vocals), Smith on guitar, Byallo on trumpet and Scott on Moog synth. There's a couple guest appearances as well: Damian Schwartz plays some bass on "Sidewalks" and Eureka provides "a hell of a [vacuum] rev" on "Stage Left."
