Search By Tag: Koreless

Koreless has always expanded our minds into the weird side of music, but his latest release was by far his most fascinating single yet. Minimal and yet incredibly deep and thought-provoking, the release was a work that helped me keep grounded throughout the madness that has been my summer.

With that being said, listening to Koreless all of the time would be a bit difficult, and I’m excited to have dug up a remix that’s a little bit easier to digest, and a whole hell of a lot easier to listen to before a party. Still keeping all of the right elements complex, Patrick Perez’s remix brings a dance influence to the entire piece, making it just as appropriate to listen to in moments of deep thought and at a dark warehouse party in the shady side of town. Listen below!

Pretty easy to get lost in Tokyo, especially considering small neighborhoods do away with street names in lieu of three combinations of numbers (3-11-6) for each small area – making tasks such as discovering record stores tucked away in the back corners of Shibuya or perched on the 18th floor of a building in Akihabara nightmarish for anyone who’s not fluent in Japanese, especially considering how often record stores in Tokyo are being shut down now, which is a mega :( situation.

New track from Koreless (mixed with Floating Point’s “Sais (Dub)” here – as the video’s an unofficial one taken from Jamie XX’s latest Essential Mix) evokes a bit of the wonder and excitement of being lost in a sprawling metropolis without all the hyperbolic melancholy that Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson brought to the table.

Lapalux

Apr 7 2011

Pictures Music are doing a follow up their recent succesful release with Koreless, they’re doing a boutique 50 tape+download release with 22 year old Essex producer Lapalux. The release is a six track EP called “Many Faces Out Of Focus” and will be out on April 18th. The track “Time Spike Jamz” opens the EP with lush, blissful abstract beats that meets a popiness and underneath it all you can distinguish a faint sub bass.

Versatile is a term that maybe gets overused these days, but Glasgow based Koreless is exactly that. Evoking the emotional side of Ramadanman and the mechanical side of James Blake, his debut EP is a sophisticated cut of cleanliness and micro melodies sparking off one another, working around organic instrumentation and lonely vocals.

“Maria” is available as a free digital download to help promote the “4D / MTI” single, and it builds a wispy harmony up into a full bodied piano song accompanied by a stuttering two step beat floating overhead.

You can also listen to his excellent jazz(ish) mix for The Daily Street and download his recent Jaques Greene remix if you somehow missed it.

The “4D / MTI” EP is available now on both 12-inch vinyl and as digital download. The vinyl is hand-stamped, numbered and part of a limited run of 300 copies.

The Look

Jan 12 2011

Montreal hybrid house producer Jacques Greene is one to watch out for in 2011, “The Look” is his debut EP that was released a few months ago by the good folks at Lucky Me and now we get the chance for a vinyl version. Glasgow based production prodigy Koreless gives the slick original version with that chopped up Brandy vocal sample a well defined shuffling pattern with a steady clicking melody.
