Electronic Explorations look to DeFeKT
Irish electro producing artist DeFeKT will supply the second Electronic Explorations 12″ release.
Electronic Explorations went from widely respected podcast to fledgling label in quite distinctive fashion last year, releasing an epic 61 track digital compilation canvassing electronic music which featured unreleased material from an impressive range of artists including AnD, Kowton, Old Apparatus, and Perc. Four of the contributions from that compilation by Δkkord, Kahn, Milanese and Ruckspin were subsequently included on the maiden Electronic Explorations vinyl release EE:V:001.With Electronic Explorations founder Rob Booth fully engaged on A&R duties at Houndstooth, the label aspect has taken something of a back seat this year, though news has now arrived of their second 12″ release.
Whilst the first EE 12″ traversed the 130BPM plus bassier end of the spectrum, the label’s second vinyl release turns to electro with a four track EP from Dublin-based producer DeFeKT, who appeared on the aforementioned Electronic Explorations compilation with “Sunseq”. DeFeKT’s Transmuter EP will be Electronic Explorations first solo artist record, which follows the Irishman’s Switch EP released earlier this year on the Signal Code imprint, and his contribution to a Cultivated Electronics sampler which saw DeFeKT collaborate with Sync 24, alongside other productions from Gosub, Versalife and the ever-prolific Tadd Mullinix as J.T.C.
Electronic Explorations will release Transmuter in late November on florescent red vinyl.
