After the release of 2013’s Paragon EP, Dutch artist Julian Edwardes returns to the musical playground with a new 3-track treasure called Rapalje. Edwardes kicks the door in with low-keyed electric piano play, dense percussion and electrifying harmonies on Skelter. Sacre Bleu keeps the ball rolling with a more tranquil, silky vibe before finishing off the EP with the stunning, progressive style of Rapalje.
The music of Julian Edwardes (Breda, The Netherlands) has its counterpart in the works of artists like Flying Lotus, Badbadnotgood, Tortoise and Mouse on Mars. Edwardes re-samples, chops and screws sounds coming from ancient synths and 21st century machines and arranges them in his eccentric musical constructions. He worked with artists like Big Mister Doom, Ben Butler & Mousepad, E.R.P., Emufucka, Pierce Warnecke, Planes and Julien Mier + he released music on labels like Shipwrec, Filthy Broke Recordings and Lomechanik.
Rapalje is mastered by Collin Visser. Mister Adam provided the artwork with the use of an illustration by Leon van den Langenberg.
