After three years of silence in the studio, Francis Harris has announced his return to affairs with a split extended player due out via his own Scissor & Thread imprint, and featuring two remixes from multi talented French-born, Berlin-based producer Valentino Mora.
It’s been 4 years since Francis Harris released his deeply emotive and poignant album ‘Minutes Of Sleep‘, which we divulged in our in-depth film with Francis Harris back in 2014. The present ‘Minor Forms‘ EP marks the first solo material to arise from the producer since that album and, let’s be clear, the results are nothing less than stunning. As usual with the Brooklyn-based producer, the listener is ushered in a beautifully evocative realm of sounds – laid somewhere between ambient, jazz whilst never losing sight of the dancefloor.
However it is Valentino Mora that really takes centre stage with this release. His ‘Underwater Rephrase‘ version adds a shimmering propulsive kick that extends for just shy of 9 minutes. The second revisitation, ‘Cosmic Trans Rephrase‘, goes even deeper by replacing the kick drums with glitchy abstractions and dubby interplays. This is 100% essential.
Minor Forms EP is scheduled for release 23rd February 2018, order a copy from Bandcamp.
