Low Flung
Blow Waves
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Ken Oath)
15,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Following on from Angophora's beautiful long player, Ken Oath is back with another full length LP from Low Flung. Friends of the label will note that this is his third release for Ken Oath, and it's a fittingly mature and expansive statement for a debut LP. Perhaps mature is the wrong word here, as all his brilliant ideas are backed up by a sense of whimsy that betrays his playful side. The music strikes a balance between styles and spaces that could perfectly soundtrack moments at home, in the club, and in the liminal spaces between.Danny's efforts at writing dance music still contain the idiosyncratic approaches of his ambient works: The deadly deep subs and endless echo spirals on "Rising Damp" sounds like someone trying to piece together a Drum & Bass track after an off-hand conversation about the genre. He's transmuted the propulsive energy of jungle into something no less dynamic, full of stops and starts and sonic pressure but flush with space. "Tarp Climber" is at heart a rollicking digi-dub.The more ambient moments of the LP are equally captivating - the glassy tones of "Frozen Coat" sound like a space-age ensemble soundtracking a floating lounge on a suite of glass instruments, while "Ocean Grove" blends field recordings and dreamy synthesizer melodies to create an uncanny sense of place that unroots you from wherever you're listening.There's a heavy emphasis on Danny's collaborators as well - the Cold Emotion duo is reprised on the spacey ‘Hills Hoist’. Closer "Bacchus Marsh" is a collaboration with Prophets, a cross-state ensemble that defy any easy categorisation. The music here flirts with jazz and minimalism but with a dubwise production aesthetic to produce something that recalls Khan Jamal's visionary "Drum Dance to the Motherland" in spirit and practice, but this whole album sounds as otherworldly and one-of-a-kind as the aforementioned LP.
Matthew Hayes & Joel Trigg - Elegant Universe
Matthew Hayes & Joel Trigg
Elegant Universe
Tape | 2018 | EU | Original (Ken Oath)
9,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Elegant Universe' a full-length album by Matthew Hayes and Joel Trigg is a must listen for fans of the celestial jazz sound of ECM. Their soft, seductive duets are incredibly inviting, in a way that seems to encompass and enliven the space around you. Unsurprisingly, it’d be sure to add warmth to cold winter commutes, and dull the edge of even the fiercest hangovers.The wintry “Downtime” is a tour de force of the duo’s sense of restraint and the importance placed on individual sounds that swell together and drift apart with organic ease. On “Light Through Edinburgh Leaves”, the sounds themselves seem so three-dimensional, ringing out like ripples on a lake. It’s hard not to be captivated by such beautifully formed music."
Midnight Tenderness - Refresco EP
Midnight Tenderness
Refresco EP
12" | 2018 | EU | Original (Ken Oath)
11,39 €* 11,99 € -5%
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Still steamin’ from his Turner Street Sound collaboration, Midnight Tenderness serves up a dreamy first solo offering with a fire-cracker of a four-tracker for Sydney’s Ken Oath Records. The opener ‘Refresco’ is a bleary eyed house number with gently propulsive 707 cowbells and shaker rhythms over smooth pads & an infectiously jazzy bassline. The four to the floor mould is quickly broken as the EP progresses - Terme is a midtempo electro track that retains all of the dreaminess of Refresco while punching in some swish drum programming. Flipping the record over, Bevanda is a sweaty miasma of sub-bass, FM flutes and birdlike synth leads that could soundtrack an imaginary club located in the middle of Queensland’s tropical rainforests. The EP’s closer, Hydra, pushes the tempo way down and introduces some smooth guitar licks, courtesy of Riffin’ Rory as well as some lithe flute play. The end result is a sleazy New Jack Swing jam that works as well for warm-up as it does for cooling down. If you’re tired of buying boring club 12’s, look no further! This one will be as comfortable coming through your home stereo as it will be in the club.

Angophora - Scenes
Angophora
Scenes
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Ken Oath)
16,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
On the first long player release on Ken Oath records, we are proud as punch to step away from the dancefloor entirely and bring you a deep journey into the alfresco inspirations of life in the Australian bush. Sydney’s Angophora (Max Santilli and Jacob Fugar) present Scenes, where resting pulses and humid atmospherics frame gentle percussion, warm synth work and tasteful guitar licks that take a note from the Balearic handbook but remain clear in their appreciation and respect for the sounds and colours of Australian nature. Music best listened with the ancient ochres of the Australian outback in view. So seamlessly will the sonic palette of Scenes fit your surroundings, you’ll begin to question whether or not these gentle surroundings are being emitted from the wax spinning on your plate or Eucalypts whirring in the wind around you.
