Started in 2015, Lissoms is a Berlin imprint founded by Newcastle artist and producer Edmondson. Best known for releases like 2013’s Chestnut Ave EP on Hypercolour, Edmondson has recently decided to pair up with his long time friend Practitioner for Linhope -- a split 12” featuring three tracks from each.
Following on from last year’s Hemisphere release popping up everywhere from Panorama bar to Radio 1, Edmondson brings cosmic house & leftfield techno to side A. Not too surprising, we have decided to premiere one the cosmic house tunes from the record. This one is titled “Kloof,” which features a playful assortment of sampled vocals and sashaying synths that delicately dance around a bassline whose sole purpose is to get you up on your feet.
On the other side of the record, we have Practitioner -- who has been active for well over a decade under numerous aliases and producing electronic productions floating ambiguously between UK-centric bass music and Romanian minimal.
Once a resident at the notorious Berlin institution Tacheles, he has material forthcoming later this year on Well Street Records, amongst others. His side of the record encompasses soundscape dub techno and 130 beat abstractions, sounding both meandering and monolithic.
If “Kloof” tickles your fancy or if you’re curious to hear what the rest of the record sounds like, feel free to pre-order Linhope by following this link right here. It’s set to hit the shelves on May 25th!
