Lapalux - Forgetting and Learning Again feat. Kerry Leatham

Stuart Howard aka Lapalux returns with Some Other Time, his second EP for Brainfeeder, a further, deeper journey into fractured emotion, tape experiments and mutating states of consciousness. 

“Quartz” is built around a stumbling music box refrain and filtered vocals. “Jaw Jackin’” is perhaps more propulsive but with no drop-off in surface interference. “Forgetting and Learning Again” features vocals from the wonderful Kerry Leatham, showing that Howard, for all the cutting edge sonics, can also fashion a great song. “Strangling You With the Cord” hits harder, a post-Dilla swing to the drum programming and dubbed out vocal samples. The EP is rounded out by “Close Call”, which twists a strange kind of cosmic soul jazz out of its chopped, squashed and stretched elements.

There are few electronic producers out there who are more concerned with the minutiae of surface and texture than Lapalux, and still fewer who understand so well the deep effects that these textures can have upon the listener’s mood. In Lapalux’s productions nothing is left to chance. He makes swooningly beautiful and disorientating music that never sits still for more than a moment.

Fink - Perfect Darkness (Lapalux Remix)

All you alt / avant folk fans out there may or may not be aware that Fink will be releasing a double A side on Ninja Tune on October 3rd.  However more importantly for me is this Lapalux remix that will be accompanying it.

We’re been big fans of the Essex boy here at the Donky Camp, and to be honest I get a little wet down below whenever I hear about a new remix such as this.  Here Lapalux gives us enough of his brain melting madness to satisfy all tech head enthusiasts, whilst leaving enough space underneath to give the original space to breathe.  Watch out for fothcoming Lapalux releases on the brainfeeder label.  Boy got game.

Second-Sight Compilation Vol.2

The second instalment of what I have been listening to over the past month. In case you missed the first one, you can still cop it here. Featuring 30 artists with the likes of Knxwledge, Toro y Moi, Holy Other and Zomby. If you are an artist and would like your music to feature on volume three, hit me up with a message here.

Please take the time to visit the artists pages and support their music. You can click on the artists name for more information about them. They have been kind enough to give these tracks away for free, so please don’t profit off them. If you’re a lover of instrumental hip hop, chilled electronica and garage bass lines then you should hopefully dig this series of compilations.
