Following the release of his excellent debut on Barcelona’s Lapsus Records, Wordcolour lands on Houndstooth with an astounding EP of next generation club music. The London-based producer invites us into his musical world as we journey through three highly detailed soundscapes, both emotionally resonant and functional for the floor.
‘Breathless’ is a frenetic track filled with panting and breath sounds; coming out of a desire to explore faster tempos. Sitting at 160bpm, with elements of electro, IDM and footwork that also had these brief breakcore moments that jump out at you.
‘Juno’ is a track that is kind of a homage to the feel of the venue Juno Café, and finally, ‘I Waited For You This Morning’ feels a bit like a sequel to my track ‘Tell Me Something’, released on LAPSUS in July, using similar vocal samples. This one is a dreamy, melancholic techno track.
With a background in jazz, pop and contemporary classical, Wordcolour has also previously produced music for TV and theatre. On his sophomore solo release, he demonstrates his diverse musical knowledge with dynamic and engaging compositions that indicate many years of music making. While making nods to the best of contemporary UK experimentation, these cinematic tracks deftly switch between tempos all the while retaining Wordcolour’s own aesthetic signature.
