Pantha Du Prince

‘The Winter Hymn’ feat. Queens

pdpThe electronic producer’s first solo album is six years.

In advance of a new LP, The Triad, on May 20th, Pantha Du Prince dropped a new three-track EP, the first since 2010’s Black Noise. The lead track is seemingly informed by his work with the Bell Laboratory, which you can hear very clearly in the sustained bell textures throughout the slow-motion electronic haze.

“Black Noise was very much about me being alone in a small room in Berlin and composing. The Triad opens the structure to more human ways of interacting, not digitized ways of interacting. It’s not about Facebook; it’s about meeting up and jamming. I wanted to cut through the digital dust that surrounds us.”

THE TRIAD Tracklisting:

1. The Winter Hymn (feat. Queens)
2. You What? Euphoria!
3. Frau im Mond, Sterne Laufen
4. In An Open Space (feat. Queens)
5. Chasing Vapour Trails (feat. Joachim Schultz & Kassian von Troyer)
6. Lichterschmaus
7. Dream Yourself Awake
8. Lions Love (feat. Joachim)
9. Islands In The Sky
10. Wallflower for Pale Saints


FKA Twigs

Good To Love

twigsA surprise new song from Ms. Barnett.

A song that came from her Soundtrack 7 residency at the Manchester International Festival, produced by herself and Rick Nowels, ‘Good To Love’ is a more straightforward song that we’re used to from Twigs but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t leave an equal impact.

FKA Twigs will perform this on Fallon on Wednesday night in the US so look out for that.
