Velour Modular ‘Esc’ – from forthcoming EP (Stream)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 26, 2014 by E.N.

Velour Modular 'Esc' - from forthcoming EP.Velour Modular is a collaboration project between the French singer Guilhem – who released her recent debut in the Master Series of Nick Warren on the Label Renaissance with “Nocturne part 1″ – and London based Spanish producer Hektagon. Hektagon’s remix credits include the likes of HFB (Alex Paterson from the Orb), Baobinga and ID amongst others, with his work picking up extensive BBC Radio One play from Mary Anne Hobbs.

On her debut EP, Capsule, the experience known as Velour Modular shares a love of Kuedo’s melodic synth motifs, summon the bubbling electronica of Seekae, the spacious, hallucinatory elements of Clams Casino, the shuffling percussion of Phon.o, and wrap it all in a Mount Kimbie haze.

A native of Cannes, and the daughter of two painters, Guilhem spent her childhood growing up in India, originally studying how to sing in the traditional Indian way. Moving from town to town, Pondicherry, Madras, Bangalore, she travelled a great deal, before returning to France and immersing herself in the creative world. Velour Modular was a project that ultimately came to existence over late night Skype calls between Guilhem and Hektagon. Guilhem explains;

We had common obsessions at the time – old futuristic movies such as Logan’s Run, Blade Runner, 2001 Space Odyssey or The Never Ending Story. All this sci-fi period, with the debut of electronics and the sounds related to it, was the soil of our creation and you can clearly hear that retro-futurist sound with the 8bit, “bips”, old connection system noise…ect.. It was really important for us to construct a real storytelling: we were focused on doing a kind of “black box” that could testify of a lost world

Future Disco Vol. 7 – ‘Til The Lights Come Up

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 7, 2014 by E.N.

Future Disco Vol. 7 - 'Til The Lights Come UpToo early to go home, too late to stay still…

The award-winning Future Disco series sets the tone for 2014 with their seventh instalment ‘Til The Lights Come Up’. After a successful third summer residency in conjunction with Carl Cox at Space in Ibiza, Future Disco’s Sean Brosnan delivers a seventeen track compendium that pays tribute to those that keep pace until the end of the night. A true revival of that magical time in the early hours when the senses are on edge and emotions run high, visiting the timeless space when the DJ keeps you moving until the lights come up.

As ever, Future Disco provides foresight into the artists that are stirring things up and tracks set to dominate dancefloors, while creating an enchanted aural expedition that yearns to be revisited time and again. ‘Til The Lights Come Up’ reintroduces old heroes (the collaborative forces of Cajmere & Sonny Wharton set an early pace), explores new musical forces (check Psychemajik, Lucas and Ejeca), and is unafraid to make obscure choices (try DJ Koze’s remix of Mount Kimbie). Overloaded with exclusive edits, Future Disco exposes music that demands to be taken seriously.
