You wouldn’t think that growing up in the Swiss Alps in the 90′s would be the best place to be exposed to some of New York’s bes underground hip hop. However Anglo-Swiss producer Laurent Clerc, AKA Little People, argues he couldn’t have been in a better place. A self released EP led to being picked up by Illicit Recordings in London – through which “Mickey Mouse Operation” was eventually released. This was 2006 and his debut album only made a very modest splash. Over the subsequent years, however, it turned into something of a sleeper ‘hit’ – gathering fervent support in the US and slowly climbing the US iTunes electronic chart in the process.Little people’s sound is part beats, bleeps and snippets of other people’s music. Stemming from hip hop, it effortlessly combines warm synths, intricate melodies and string arrangements.
Manchester based producer Frameworks (Matthew Brewer) returns with his third studio album ‘Imagine Gold’ on LOCI Records. Sighting the album as a reflection of his taste rather than his skill, this album delivers a diversely influenced and executed body of work that reflects growth and maturity. Understated yet intricate, IG narrates and explores the process of creativity; “This album was about simplicity, about creating something I would listen to, ignoring the external validation I had often sought in the past to create something introspective and personal” explains Matthew. IG offers beauty and sophistication; it proudly states it’s a different record from its predecessors and it walks into the limelight offering no apologies.
the artist known as Yppah (pronounced “yip-ah”) is back with perhaps his most intimate work to date. Tiny Pause, due for release on Counter Records October 16, finds Yppah adopting an enormous technical shift in his writing process, moving away from largely software-based production and live instrumentation to modular synthesizers and samplers. Inspired in large part by 8mm footage and self-described “creepy/beautiful” archived film found on the internet, Yppah draws on the same palette of the living landscape, human memory and emotive warmth found in his prior work and magnifies it, echoing the sounds of Tycho, Baths and Boards of Canada.
