Snakehips-Forever Pt.II (Feat. Kaleem Taylor) (Stream)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 10, 2015 by E.N.

snakehips2014 saw production duo Snakehips release their latest single ‘Days With You’ feat Sinead Harnett alongside them regularly hitting the top spot on the hype-machine with their faultless remixes (Banks, Raury, The Weeknd, Wild Belle, Bondax). All of which aided the impressive growth of the London based act and resulted in them being one of the most in demand teams to seek out for remixes and DJ shows – here and in the US.

2015 however is focused on their own productions – kicking off with the brilliant ‘Forever (Part II)’ EP coming this spring on Hoffman West. A run of UK & EU dates have also been announced.
Recorded both here and in the US, the 4 track EP is inspired by golden-era hip-hop and R&B and demonstrates Oliver Lee & James Carter’s uplifting production and killer songwriting skills once again. True to form, the EP also showcases a stand-out roster of featured vocalists. London born R&B singer Kaleem Taylor who recently featured on Tchami’s chart topping single ‘Promesses’, now lends his silky, soulful sound to the first single ‘Forever (Pt. II)’. Snakehips mix up the original with the welcome addition of Kaleem’s tenacious lyrics combined with upbeat and playful percussion.

Next on the EP is the sensual ‘Gone’, which features Odd Future vocalist and The Internet member Syd on vocals. The singer’s sultry vocals are drenched with soul and are matched with warped, layered beats. ‘Overtime’ channels classic 90’s R&B with loose-limbed, freeing vocals from UK singer-songwriter Sasha Keable. The final offering on the EP ‘Poison’ is a sexy, melodic finale featuring a smooth and charming vocal performance from Daniella T.A.O.L which crescendos with arpeggiated, seducing synths.
With championing radio support to date from key players Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, Nick Grimshaw and Mistajam, the release of this new EP in advance of a debut album later in the year, 2015 already looks set to be all about the very talented Snakehips.

‘Forever (Part II)’ Tracklist:
1 Forever (Pt.II) ft Kaleem Taylor
2 Gone ft Odd Future
3 Overtime ft Sasha Keable
4 Poison ft Daniella T.A.O.L
Snakehips are hitting the road in March with a series of DJ shows in London, Bristol, Brighton, Manchester and Dublin.
Tour Dates:
13/3 – The Laundry, London
20/3 – Marble Factory, Bristol
21/3 – Gorilla, Manchester

Lapalux – Lustmore April 7th, 2015 on Brainfeeder

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 28, 2015 by E.N.

LAPALUX LUSTMORELapalux knew where and how his sound should change with a second album. As a result, Lustmore feels like a record as compulsively inspired and meticulously crafted as you’re likely to hear in 2015.

Lustmore is loosely based on the idea of hypnogogia, a kind of limbo of consciousness between being awake and asleep. Listeners familiar with his 2011 debut, Nostalchic, will know that Stuart Howard’s woozy, infectious rhythms, enveloping textures and unfamiliarly familiar melodies conjure that territory perfectly.

Lustmore sees the young producer take another stride forward. Opener “U Never Know,” which features another masterful vocal turn by Andreya Triana, sets the tone for the album. “The line ‘I don’t think you’ll know’ describes the mysterious limbo-like state between waking life and sleep,” Howard says.

The sleazy, yearning throb of “Puzzle (ft. Andreya Triana)” is unmistakably sexualized. “It’s a lovelessness,” Howard says, “searching for something more lustful and fleeting. It’s a very visual song for me. It’s about a sort of seedy, underground desire, like an old bar that used to have class, getting slowly seedier, to keep up with the demand for exploitation and filth. I think it sums up the whole feel and mood of the record,” Howard says. “That kind of sultry, seedy undertone and the pieces of the puzzle not fitting together properly, as if in a state of limbo where you don’t know where you are, but there’s something strangely comforting about it.” Those words could well be a credo for Lapalux’s wider musical vision.

The sound palette used in making the album was carefully crafted to sound retro futuristic and otherworldly, having sounds in there that could accompany a Bladerunner or 2001: A Space Odyssey. “Whenever I think about the album I think about the bar scene in The Shining,” Howard says. “There’s something about that strange, hallucinatory psychological madness that relates to the music, both in the making of the actual record and the way it sounds.”

Studying old film soundtracks was a hugely important process for the making of the album. “I really focused on making this album an imaginary visual experience. You can almost see these imaginary movies play in your head when you listen,” he says. “That’s something that I really started to work into my music – the idea of creating imagery and characters, storyline, and emotion.” It’s a process that has certainly worked: Lustmore is imbued with an emotional narrative that never loosens its grip on the ear.

Rustie’s sophomore full length Green Language sees its release next month on August 26. Until then, he is sharing another track from the record titled “Attak” which marries his trademark ear for beat, melody and punch with a frenzied vocal from Detroit rapper Danny Brown. Their collaboration efforts were first heard on Brown’s 2013 LP Old on which Rustie produced several tracks.
