Ross From Friends has signed to Brainfeeder, with new film 'Aphelion' EP incoming.
The producer is part of a wave of underground talent loosely bracketed as lo-fi house, and has previously worked with labels such as Breaker Breaker, Lobster Theremin, and Magic Wire.
Snapped up by Brainfeeder, the move will be followed by a full EP release. It's an incredible co-sign, with the Los Angeles imprint maintaining a reputation as a real electronic powerhouse.
“It’s honestly an absolute rush to sign to Brainfeeder,” he explains. “It has always been pushing such a forward thinking sound, one that constantly grabs my attention with every release. I put these four tracks together with Brainfeeder in mind; I wanted to explore the music that I’ve been developing over the past seven years as Ross From Friends whilst trying to explore the explosive sound that the label is best known for.”
New EP 'Aphelion' drops on April 13th, and it's led by new track 'John Cage'. All billowing synths, effects laden guitar lines and seagull cries, it has a Balearic air while remaining slightly unsettling.
“It originally began life as a tune for this goofy hip-hop project that me and my pal Guy from back home always do when he’s in London,” the producer explains “I’d be making the beat and he raps. It’s always a refreshing approach making tracks in that atmosphere because we’re both always on such a spontaneous tip. When I’m making music alone, I’m obsessive and everything takes hours, whereas with Guy, we’d try and get as many tracks finished as possible in like a few hours. That’s him freestyling a relaxation tape in the intro.”
Tune in now.
