Details of new Matt Karmil album arrive
The simply titled IDLE033 will arrive through Bristol’s Idle Hands in January.
Wayfaring DJ, producer, and studio engineer Matt Karmil has enjoyed a fine 2015 with four 12″s landing on Endless Flight, Yume, Studio Barnhus and Idle Hands. The arrival of the latter, Play It, was accompanied by the news Idle Hands were planning to issue a new album from Karmil at a later point this year. As RA point out, the album has now been pencilled in for release in January with Karmil eschewing any potential conundrums over names in favour of referencing the Idle Hands catalogue number.
Some 13 tracks long, IDLE033 consists of music Karmil initially submitted to Idle Hands with the intention of whittling down for another EP on the Bristol label. Founder Chris Farrell evidently felt they were collectively strong enough to release as an album, and Karmil’s second following the criptically-titled —- for Jens Uwe Beyer’s PNN label last year. A press release for IDLE033 describes the album as “vivid, vital electronic music for modern times” and warns not to expect “straight dance tracks”, nor “ponderous ambient.”.
Idle Hands will release IDLE033 by Matt Karmil on January 29.
