"It's a question of being respectful to each other," Dom Maker says of the art of collaboration. It's a simple ethic, but one that has yielded rich rewards. Since 2009, Maker and his partner in Mount Kimbie, Kai Campos, have played a central role in forging a new form for electronic music. Their influence stretches far beyond the tiny corner of the dance music underground that birthed them and, with the duo now signed to the legendary Warp label, it looks set to stretch further still in the coming years. Since their emergence Mount Kimbie have repeatedly confounded expectations, transforming themselves from bedroom-studio producers to creators of one of the most fully realised electronic album-length statements of recent years. This year, with the release of the duo's second LP, the perception of what Mount Kimbie is looks set to expand again. Still, at the heart of the band's music lies that simplest of things: the meeting of two musical minds.

Behind the moniker, Laura Jane Lowther records and produces her music from found sounds and analog synths. Whilst oft compared to Björk, Kučka’s wholly distinctive, hypnotic vocals are perfectly woven through unconventional song structures to truly make for an incomparable, otherworldly experience.

In 2013, her vocal abilities scored a big fan in rapper A$AP Rocky. After initially being sampled on Rocky’s hit single Long Live A$AP, he asked Laura to add fresh backing vocals on it and also to Fashion Killa, both appearing on his #1 Billboard album. Kučka was also named in the top five under-the-radar Australian bands by the UK’s The Guardian and took home Best Experimental Group at the WA Music Awards.
