Maze is a 2006 album by Scone released under Moamoo Records, a collaboration between glitch extraordinaire Funckarma and IDM artist Kettel. It has proved to be a very fruitful relationship between two equally excellent musicians (technically three, since Funckarma is two people).

Funckarma’s background lies in semi-glitchy idm patterns while Kettel explores the more spontaneous side of the genre with upbeat and playful melodies. With this album, there’s a strong sense of that My Dogan era sound, especially with tracks like “Blando” and “SNTH65.”

Currently, the album is receiving an ambient remake, which will no doubtingly be very interesting to hear. If you like this, definitely look into the rest of these artists’ works: “Vell Vagranz” by Funckarma is a great place to start (2009 record on n5md), and likewise, Kettel’s 2008 album Myam James Part 1 is an excellent introduction into the playful world of Kettel.

After tracking down most of the Funckarma output, I realized that their recent material (Caipruss, Bion Glent, and many contemporary remixes) sounded too similar, as if the ideas were growing stale. But then Funckarma started collaborating; frequently, heavily, and with vastly different results. Scone is by far the most satisfying of these collaborations to date, and is easily one of the best albums on which Funckarma have ever made their mark. Kettel brings a lot to the table for this release, with excellent melodies and a fresh addition to the chopped-up and frenetic beats for which Funckarma are famous. Funckarma, likewise, add funkiness and flavor to the normally more reserved Kettel electronica. Although all of the tracks on this album are superb, it’s easy to see why the album singles out “Maze” for the title track. It’s a perfect blend of Kettel’s and Funckarma’s styles, and a damn catchy tune as well. Long live Scone!
