Earlier this month, South East London label squareglass dropped the debut single from LE SON, a new duo made up of producer Liam Fergus and vocalist Emily Ady. As you'll hear on first listen of "Without a Sound," LE SON's music fuses elements of soul, R&B, trip-hop, and jazz into a delicate-yet-powerful sonic signature. Ady's vocals sit up front, hypnotically floating over Fergus' meditative keys and calling to mind the works of artists like James Blake, Bonobo, Little Dragon’s Yukimi Nagano, and early Cinematic Orchestra.
Running alongside the release of the single will be a remix from Athlete Whippet, the duo comprising sqaureglass co-founders Bunki and Ballerino. With their notoriously hazy production work as its base, the remix provides a club-based take on the poignant original, with muted drums striding confidently underneath Ady's now twisted vocals.
You can pick up Athlete Whippet's remix via WeTransfer below, with the single available to purchase on limited edition square 7" over at the squareglass store.
