  • Fourth The Golden Eagle Remixed

    Posted by kelpe

    I was keeping busy last year but evidently too busy to update my site here so a few things went un-noted.

    Mainly, I released a remixed version of my album and it featured Mike Slott, Dam Mantle, Fulgeance, Mr Chop and many more – remixing the entire album in order – for a full 10 track digital package and 5 track vinyl version.

    Here is a video for the Fuewa remix of ‘Answered’ and you can find a full bandcamp stream at the bottom. Unfortunately the vinyl is sold out on bandcamp but can be found here at Bleep.

  • Beaks of Eagles Video by Diagram Design

    Posted by kelpe

    Slightly late to post this on here, but I really like this video that Diagram Design made for the last single ‘Beaks of Eagles’. Diagram Design are a Tokyo based design and video production house established in 2006, notably known in the music world for their fantastic official videos for Goth Trad’s ‘Cut End’ on Deep Medi, plus Teebs & Jackhigh’s ‘Rains’ on Svetlana Indsutries. They specialise in an organic style of highly syncopated animation, sometimes mixed with live action footage. This video for ‘Beaks of Eagles’ follows the psychedelic flight of an origami eagle across beautiful sunset skies before it bursts into multitudinous fragments of colour.

    KELPE – Beaks of Eagles (Official Video by Diagram Design) from Drut on Vimeo.

    That single is available digitally from Bandcamp, complete with a Fulgeance remix (see below).

    The LP is out tomorrow, here is the Bandcamp page for buying digital or CD, for vinyl head to Juno.

    And here’s the live dates for the coming months:

    Friday 14th June – LP RELEASE PARTY W/ SHIGETO, London
    Saturday 6th July – Flacon, the Cube, Moscow (Russia)
    Saturday 20th July – Soundwave Festival, Tisno (Croatia)

  • Two new videos ‘Outwhere’ and ‘Single Stripe’

    Posted by kelpe

    Check these two new videos below from the upcoming LP. All in full HD. Firstly ‘Outwhere’ directed by Paul ‘Gash’ Southgate:

    And then ‘Single Stripe’ by Graphic Surgery and Mookx. This is a slightly edited down version of the track compared to what will appear on the LP.

    “The video for ‘Single Stripe’ was created by Graphic Surgery and mookx, visual artists from the Netherlands, using custom made software programmed by Johan Holwerda. It was made using a realtime controllable representation of the track in the form of a graphical oscillator, programmed in C# using technologies normally used to make shader effects for computer games. Every sound of the track is visually represented using the oscillator to perform live visual jam sessions on the track, which were then re-edited by mookx.”

  • New label / single / video / LP coming soon

    Posted by kelpe

    Hi again,

    It’s been a while since my last update, so quite a bit to rush through…

    The main news is I’ve started a record label (DRUT) to release my new LP ‘Fourth: The Golden Eagle’ and lead single ‘Answered’. The single is out now on vinyl and digital and the LP is to be released on the 3rd of June. Click the image below to buy the digital release direct from me on bandcamp, or for the vinyl head to Phonica.

    Jonathan Lieb directed this rather lavish video for the track featuring a girl becoming obsessed with searching for jigsaw puzzle pieces in snowy Denmark. Vice’s music channel Noisey premiered the video:

    And last week Clashmusic released a new DJ mix from myself which includes ‘Answered’ and tons of new and unreleased music from eLan, Mr Beatnick, Mieux and lots more. CLICK HERE TO GO AND DOWNLOAD FROM CLASH. Or stream below.

    Then, there’s a couple of free remixes of the Answered single, by Microburst (via XLR8R) and Fuewa (via Sonic Router) – see below for streams.
