Sound of Vast co-founder Red Pig Flower drops her debut EP on the label this May with a selection of intricate and hazy cuts, accompanied by a remix from Romanian artist Dubphone.
Half Korean, Half Japanese producer Red Pig Flower is a name known to many within the world of house having released on revered imprints such as Baile Musik, Unclear Records and Repeat Music. Now based out of Berlin, Red’s talent as not only a musician but also an artist in her own right has seen both DJ and live appearances at the likes of Tresor (Berlin), Womb (Tokyo) and Chalet (Berlin), and this latest EP, and the 10th release on the imprint, is an excellent example of her innate ability within the studio.
Title cut ‘Space Jazz’ opens the EP and sees Red Pig Flower deliver a series of dubby synths laid over old school jazz samples and scratches that meander fluently amongst a heady groove, before Dubphone reworks the original, stripping it back and employing a darker aesthetic perfect for the after hours.
On the flip, ‘To My Rimbaud’ employs powerful percussion, organic wind instruments and rich vocal chants within its minimal arrangement, taking inspiration from legendary French poet Arthur Rimbaud and his visions of Africa. ‘Journey Of Dreams’ concludes the package in fine style with London based producer Pav L lending his talents to convey a message of simplicity and romance, with rolling grooves and delicate percussion patterns keeping the groove steady.
Red Pig Flower ‘Space Jazz EP’ is out on Sound Of Vast on 8th May 2017.
