Craig’s List: Ike Release

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

Every fortnight, RTRFM’s Craig Hollywood will bring us a little taste of what to expect from Tuesday’s Full Frequency…

MOS Recordings presents its next album project, namely a debut solo full length from Chicago’s Ike Release, which has been aptly titled Noir. Ike is an accomplished solo producer as well as being one half of acclaimed duo Innerspace Halflife with Hakim Murphy and has a long and fruitful relationship with MOS Recordings.

Across ten tracks, Ike unleashes his array of machines (Microkorgs, a machinedrum, MPCs, iPad Apps, cracked soft synths, borrowed Nord Leads, field recordings) and explores deep, textural house, ramshackle percussive grooves, the darkest corners of the galaxy and lots more besides. Opener ‘Lost Cities’ is an underwater rhythm with gloopy synths and stiff drum hits that eases you into the ride. From there, there’s the raw, deep jack of ‘Precipiate’ with its soft acid line, the disheveled house of ‘Vapor’ and the gluey synth layers and dreamy pads of ‘Solace’.

Check the link for an exclusive listen to ‘Vapor’, which is one of the stand out inclusions from the album.

Noir will be released on MOS Recordings on November 17.

Full Frequency with Craig Hollywood airs every Tuesday from 3PM on RTRFM.
