Following releases from IA MIX alumni Maya Q and Nowt (one half of FYI Chris), Will Hofbauer lines up the seventh release on his Third Place imprint, inviting Oakland-based producers DJML & Jerod S. Rivera to collaborate for their debut release as Later Version.
Exploring timbral shades of downbeat electronica, Later Version deliver ‘Swim Domain‘ EP, effortlessly ebbing and flowing with meditative poignancy bolstered with aberrant bass and drum work – particularly demonstrated on opening highlight ‘Chelating Ligand‘.
Rounding off the EP is a digital only remix by Berlin-based producer and Jacktone Records co-founder Doc Sleep. Having recently released debut album ‘Birds (In My Mind Anyway)‘ via Tartelet Records, which we are particularly enamoured by, Doc Sleep waste no time to inject her influence on the second track ‘Swim Domain‘, elevating the original with swooning synth work, grandiose reverb and charming atmospheric feels.
‘Swim Domain’ EP is scheduled for release 28 April via Third Place. Order a copy from Bandcamp.
