Julian Edwardes "Rapalje"
With a fascination for "re-sampling, chopping, and screwing sounds from ancient synths and 21st century machines," Dutch DJ/producer Julian Edwardes is able to craft unique sounds from familiar devices. On his forthcoming Rapalje EP, Edwardes fashions bright electric piano compositions, with its title track leading a vast range of smooth and glitchy sonics. Opening with a funky key arrangement, "Rapalje" slowly dissolves as high-frequency shrieks and blips take over the production. It seems to be constantly changing form, alternating between beautiful arpeggiations and orchestral strings, with touches of computerized noise giving Edwardes' tune its smart and distinctive blend of flavors. The Rapalje EP will drop via Fremdtunes on April 28.
