  • Ohrwurm, an events and DJ collective in Kuala Lumpur, celebrates 11 years with a compilation of local acts. Cofounder Alam's contribution is a clear highlight, with its minimal arrangement, tightly coiled drums and undertones of soulful Chicago house. There's not too much going on, but even with a restrained bassline it bursts with energy and tension. A hint of garage and a repetitive hook really brings it home, making this record reason alone to check out Kuala Lumpur's scene once it emerges from the pandemic.
