was the project name under which the first two releases on the Cologne-based Karaoke Kalk label appeared. A pseudonym of KK co-owner Jens Massel, Kandis'
drowsy ambient electronica is similar to that of the more abstract of Mouse on Mars
or the more minimal of Simon "Freeform" Pyke
or the Austrian Mego label. Although Kandis
is not the only artist associated with Karaoke Kalk, Massel's Senter
and Vol Wok EPs are the most distinctive of the lot, and, though pressed in extremely limited quantities, are more than worth the effort in tracking down.
