Montreal’s @clariannorth drops his first EP on Turbo, backed by remixes from Iron Galaxy and Sei A
Visionquest & Supplement Facts regular, formerly one half of Footprintz, and A&R at Seth Troxler’s new Soft Touch imprint, Clarian has been steadily developing a solid portfolio and reputation. A prolific artist with more than just production skills, he clearly has a special talent for songwriting and a gift for melody. Up until now he’s been notably unconstrained by the narrow limits of EDM genre-fication, and this EP is no exception, as he confidently explores a new direction..
Drawing influence from the bittersweet, emotive sounds of deep, post-Burial UK house, ‘Road to Recovery’ shimmers with romance and nostalgia, a rare case of hauntingly beautiful, yet easily playable dance music. The warm textures and ambient backdrop are just as rich on ‘Who Are They to Judge Us,’ which adds skillfully cut vocals that speak to the producer’s sensitivity.
Far and away the most musical thing to come out on Turbo in a while, not to be missed!
Available in 12” white/clear vinyl + Digital
