After handing the reins of their christening release to Portland-based producer Wav Fuzz, this time our good friends at Les Yeux Orange set their sights on a local talent in the person of Parisian newcomer n.stal, whose promising debut EP ‘La Plage‘ shall hit the shelves in a few days.
In the space of just three deep, subtly dubbed-out rollers, n.stal shows sparks of a real touching singularity for such a young gun. Quoting Basic Channel, Viewlexx and Crème Organization for main influences, the emerging producer ploughs a furrow that’s actually more to do with Palms Trax’s supple blends of naive synthlines and propulsive grooves than the rugged, 303-loaded vibe of The Hague’s classic sound.
Meshing prismatic keyboards and rushing bass surfs in one vivid audio-postcard, ‘La Plage‘ oozes summer from every pore, magnetic and changing. Our premiere, the EP’s beautiful closer ‘Sans Lumière‘ discharges a healthy dose of throbbing electro interlarded with a finely-inlaid cohort of altered piano stabs and fast-lashing hats ready to shower upon the dancefloor. Can’t stop won’t stop!
La Plage EP is released via Les Yeux Orange on 28th November, pre-order a vinyl copy from Juno.
