Via Rhythm Section “Long time friend of the label, Neue Grafik, steps forth with his most fully realized offering to date. This record has been a long time coming, born out of an encounter in Paris back in 2016. This meeting of minds led to a blossoming friendship between Fred (Neue Grafik) and Bradley (RS INTL) which has taken them across 3 continents, countless dance-floors and finally crystallized onto this 12”.
The record itself takes cues from the broken-beat sound of London while paying homage to the Parisian house dance scene. Largely sample based, but also employing much more live instrumentation than ever before, Neue Grafik’s music is informed by movement and in turn offers so much for Dancers to respond to.
The EP begins with the lysergic ebbs and flows of ‘Innervision’, ( in which Wayne Snow graces the record with a sublime vocal performance) and moves effortlessly to the uplifting bruk of ‘Dance to Yemanja’ via the staccato of ‘ to Peckham Rye’( a homage to the labels origins) , before finishing on the hauntingly melancholic tones of ‘Aulnay’s Tears’ – an homage to the victim’s of police brutality in the Parisian Suburb in 2017.
With releases on 22a, Beat X Changers and Wolf Music and a whole host of exciting plans for the near future – we’re very pleased to welcome Monsieur Grafik onboard!”
