In a world in which upstart DiY talent is flooding the gates of electronic music, a few recent voices have been so strong as to be startling. Lapalux – AKA 25-year-old Stuart Howard – is certainly one such. As singular as a brilliant artist always should be, his instinctive understanding of the atmospheric power of texture grips the ear immediately on listening.

Lapalux was raised in rural Essex, midway between countryside and town; the classic, isolated hinterland that’s produced many a distinctive British voice. There’s a yearning sense to the record that it’s tempting to relate to the young Howard’s dreams about what his eventual escape into larger life might be. He certainly had a dream start when a shot-in-the-dark email to electronic hothouse Brainfeeder was immediately answered by label head Flying Lotus himself, who quickly moved on to sign him. To this day, Lapalux remains the only British artist on the Los Angeles based label.

Having made fans out of Diplo and SBTRKT, remixed everyone from Lianne La Havas via Crystal Fighters to Bonobo, Tawiah, AlunaGeorge and Speech Debelle, as well as supporting FlyLo and playing the main stage at Sonar and in Japan with Clark, it’s prime time for Lapalux’s debut full length on BRAINFEEDER.

Heathered Pearls
"Unlike some ambient music, Loyal, Polish-born Jakub Alexander’s release under the Heathered Pearls moniker, embraces the idea of melody with understated but distinct sounds emerging from the loops Alexander uses to construct his tracks. Pitchfork says lead single, “Beach Shelter,” “feeds off the same kind of unsettling ambience as Tim Hecker’sRavedeath, 1972, where the sense of a malevolent force lurking just beneath the surface is prevalent throughout. It’s filled with coarse, sandpaper-y textures, all pulling together to create a sense of quiet abrasion.”"
Eaves
Eaves
Eaves is a young, American artist with a long-time interest in architecture, the latter being an influence on the former. From his early days of fragmenting samples to make off-kilter “beats,” an approach local to his Los Angeles upbringing, to a mode of up-tempo sonic onslaught, a style he adopted once moving to his current place of residence, Brooklyn, New York City – the relationship of sound and physical structure has been the one constant throughout the 20-year old’s impressive range of work. His work is intense and loud, riding the fringe space between club music and electronic experiments. His live performances move between genres and creates a sound that forces itself on the audience, unrelenting and acute. With his latest project, GORILLA, there is a different type of architectural relationship from which he gains influence: our dependence on the Internet to maintain a stimulating coexistence.
