Irrelevant - Epitaph
Ahead of the release of Irrelevant’s new single ‘Little Figurines’, out on 25th November via London-based bass label Kokeshi, the gorgeous bonus album track ‘Epitaph’ is available now as an exclusive free download.

This stunning track is an exclusive bonus taken from the upcoming album ‘Little Figurines’ which is released on 16th December which follows on from the success of his 2011 debut ‘I’ll Be OK’ (which can be filed next to Burial, Four Tet and Synkro).

Irrelevant has a background as a DJ having spun tech – house for many years, before settling on his current sound. He has also done several live sets for Kokeshi in the UK and abroad. Nowadays, his sets have been described as eclectic, “With regards to Irrelevant as a DJ, I’ve never settled in one scene, one of my sets could span electronic, house, techno, garage, drum ‘n’ bass and more.”

Irrelevant feels his inspirations haven’t changed from the making of ‘I’ll be OK’, but over the past two years, upheaval in his personal life alongside the desire to develop his sound have formed a large part of the tracks on the upcoming album:

I feel more comfortable with the techniques and equipment I use now too so making the music I want to hear is an easier process

‘Little Figurines’ displays Irrelevant’s unique sound in full force, and with him being regarded as one of the building blocks of Kokeshi’s vision, he will be one to watch in coming years.

Darkstar Announce ‘HD7’ EP (Stream Zomby Remix)

A1. Timeaway (Darkstar Remix)
B1. Hold Me Down (Darkstar Remix)
B2. You Don’t Need A Weatherman (cult x zomby remix (kollaps))

The A-side sees Darkstar flexing their house music muscles, firmly cementing their prowess as remixers by transforming two of their own tracks into playful, percussion-heavy grooves. For their remix of ‘Timeaway’, the band tease the original steel drum-esque melody before twisting it, looping it and bringing it in and out of the mix seemingly at will, while pitch-shifted cowbells flutter around lo-fi, Balearic synths. Their reworking of “Hold Me Down” is more of a slow burner, and sees layers of falsetto vocal samples, shrill synth stabs and crisp hi-hats steadily build around a bouncy bassline before it all swiftly retreats, leaving nothing more than a dreamy, ambient drone.

The B-side of HD7 features an exceptionally rare remix offering from notorious New York-based producer Zomby, alongside his Cult Music project under the moniker Kollaps. Typically, his remix of “You Don’t Need A Weatherman” sees him enveloping the track in a beautifully murky layer of smog, with the vocals becoming merely a faint whisper in the background. It’s the kind of impossibly dark and emotive sound we’ve come to expect from Zomby.
