|➲ Nocto “Next To You EP” ★ Label: Cut Records ★ Released 01 October 2015 ★|
Intriguing left-field, rhythmic patterns, vocals wandering through fields of experimental bass and beats, and an almost trip-hop esque vision of modern experimental music permeates this beautiful 6-track EP from producer Nocto.
Channeling rippled visions of Portishead, Lamb and Massive Attack, while filtering the more experimental side of previous Cut releasees such as Craset, The Crisis Project, Swoon and many more this EP brings both of those worlds colliding together in a fascinating collection of tracks.
|➲ Himuro Yoshiteru “Fushigi Man EP” ★ Label: King Deluxe ★ Released 14 September 2015 ★|
“We at King Deluxe are happy to present a short but sweet new E.P. from Himuro Yoshiteru, a Japanese artist who’s had a strong influence on the sort of hard-to-pin-down crossover music that we’ve come to embrace over the years.
Joining him we have Julian Glander providing some of his iconic visual flair.”
|➲ Craset “The Way EP” ★ Label: Cut Records ★ Released 01 June 2015 ★|
“Channeling dark, wet nights, dank back-alleys, raw emotion and haunting beauty. Russian producer Craset gives us his twist on melancholy post-dubstep.
This future-garage, dusty-electronica or whatever you want to term it is undeniably influenced by the likes of Burial and his contemporaries, but bringing something new to the table.
Skippy breaks, rumbling sub, echoing vocals and all the textbook hallmarks of the soundtrack to your post-club wander home at 5am.”
|➲ Gauvin “When The Sky Turns Black EP” ★ Label: Soigne Tes Oreilles ★ Rel. 25 May 2015 ★|
“When The Sky Turns Black” was recorded last summer and tells of Gauvin‘s adventures during those months. Sampling the sounds of everyday life, the rhythmic and ambient tones recorded from his apartment, kitchen, by the window or in the metro, tell the story of a summer blocked between Nantes and Paris. The titles of the tracks have a direct relationship with the time and place they were written and give the sensation that one is there themselves.
