Later this month, Tryst, a UK duo made up of Jordan and Enhua Bruce, will release their debut EP, Issho, on Apparel Tronic. a collection based around field recordings taken in Tokyo/Kyoto, Japan in April 2017.
The EP presents five gorgeous dub originals based around field recordings taken in Japan last year, backed by remixes from Japanese jazz musician Gak Sato and Apparel Tronic founders Kisk and SCHiLLING under their new collaborative guise, 2KS. Issho is a deeply personal release crafted to act as a memory of Jordan and Enhua's honeymoon in Japan and features fields recordings taken in Kyoto’s Bamboo Forest of Arashiyama and Kiyomizu-dera Buddhist temple, and Tokyo’s Akihabara and Shibuya districts, Ueno Park, and more. With the field recordings as a base, the duo weave in and out of dubbed-out chords, swirling synth lines, snaking grooves, and ethereal textures in a refined, understated style.
In support of the EP, Tryst has offered up a full stream of "Mountain Mist," a beautiful dub ambient track, available via the player below.
