Kleidosty has a new album coming up, and … it’s f*cking fantastic. In addition to the influences Kleidosty lists in his bio (Boards of Canada, Stars of the Lid, Lone, Oval, Freescha, Bibio, Brian Eno, Nobukazu Takemura) the sound also reminds me of some of Holden and Nathan Fake’s material on Border Community, especially Drowning In A Sea of Love.
I love this album!
Worldwide, all-outlet release date is July 3rd on Loöq.
Kleidosty’s first album, Edifice of Artifice, is a purely ambient project, and also extremely well done.

After a somewhat quiet period in terms of new releases, Spesh and I are getting our groove on. This release, Church, is part two of a triptych. Part one was Cycle Three, and Part three (My Kicks) will come out later this summer.
I would say the sound is closer to progressive house than tech house (we released it under the latter), but “progressive” these days means giant builds, 128bpm, bees in a jar sounds (in other words close to what used to be trance, but is now the sound of EMD appreciated by 14-20 year olds). That’s cool, I’m not fighting it, I’m flowing with it!
This one is deep and modern, on the minimalist side. If you like it, please buy it — remember its okay to spend a little money on music even though you can get it for free. ;-)
The excellent remixes come courtesy of Bristol’s own Mariana, and Castletown’s Steve McGrath.
I’ve got a new release out today on Beatport with my longtime music collaborator and business partner DJ Spesh. I don’t ask for donations or have a “tip jar” on this blog, but I always appreciate track purchases. Many thanks!
Try not to end up in here.
My first dance single came out in 1992 (DJ JD — “1-900″). I was 22 years old. My most recent dance single came out last Wednesday (Yellowcake and Kevin Knapp — Oh Yuki/Waterfall). My dance music career is old enough to legally order a drink at a bar.
At the beginning of your artistic career, the challenge is to make enough noise to be recognized at all. A couple decades later, if you’ve had any success at all, the challenge is to stay out of the cupboard.
Let me explain.
