Digital Release Date: 14th January 2013
’The PL’ is the new single from Bristol’s hugely talented rising star Typesun – deep, minimal, underground soul music that’s already a firm favourite with some serious soul heads. It has grabbed the attention of such luminaries as Gilles Peterson, Jazzanova, Mr Scruff, Annie Mac, Lauren Laverne, Julio Bashmore and Pete Tong and is already causing a stir across the blogs and key tastemaker sites.
Cryptic but emotive lyrics are set across an expansive instrumental that remains deceptively simple throughout, a huge part of the piece’s charm resting in it’s tension, which never quite releases. The YouTube video has received over 7,000 listens in less than a month..
File alongside Dilla, D’Angelo and Dwele – another hint of the diversity and depth of Typesun’s forthcoming debut LP ‘Work Is Love Made Visible’, due for release later this year.
The remix treatment comes from Behling & Simpson, another of the city’s hardest working production teams who have been making huge moves throughout 2012 with killer releases on the burgeoning ‘Futureboogie’ imprint.
