Editors’ Notes The last time Superpitcher delivered a proper LP, 2004's Here Comes Love, he was caught in the middle of Kompakt's schaffel movement, a much-needed antidote to techno's 4/4 beat. In the years since, he's appeared on a steady stream of solid singles, mixes, and one decidedly bizarre side project (Supermayer, featuring Kompakt co-founder Michael Mayer). Yet none of them quite hit the shape-shifting heights that are spread across Kilimanjaro's 11 tracks. Setting the scene with chirping birds and bell-tower clangs ("Prelude"), Superpitcher dives right into his most dynamic productions yet, including the ghoulish grooves and dub-derived drums of "Voodoo"; the cheeky vocals and lean, LCD Soundsystem-like loops of "Rabbits In a Hurry," and the persistent piano-house hooks of "Joanna," which pays tribute to a lost lover without losing sight of the dance floor below.
