Will Saul has certainly kept himself busy in 2014, maintaining the growing catalog of his Aus label while also turning in a number of solo productions and turning in a contribution to the esteemed DJ-Kicks mix album series. Keeping with his prolific pace, Saul has now announced plans to issue a new 12" under his Close alias next month. Leading off the upcoming No Love Lost EP, the record's title track finds Saul collaborating with Houndstooth affiliate Second Storey (who recently announced his upcoming debut LP) and Stateside vocalist Kid A. The collaborative track is said to find the trio crafting "a deluge of ghostly tones... built from broken rhythm structures, capacious sweeps, and haunting vocals."
Along with a funk-lined remix of "No Love Lost" from fast-rising LA producer/vocalist Seven Davis Jr, the forthcoming EP will also see Saul and Second Storey deliver two additional collaborations, "Lacuna Slide" and "WAL." Serving as the London producer's first release as Close since dropping his debut LP under the moniker last year, the No Love Lost EP will see its official release on September 1. In the meantime, the record's artwork and full tracklist are included below.
A1 "No Love Lost (feat. Kid A)"
A2 "No Love Lost (Seven Davis Jr Remix)"
