Review: London imprint Pictures Music has swiftly aligned itself with the ever growing wave of talented young things making genre spanning music from machines - impressing with releases from Dark Sky and the perma fringed Seams. They reach out to Glasgow for their latest release, with 19 year old Koreless - currently being feted by the Young Turks and Hessle Audio stables - matching the labels previous output in terms of quality. Whislt there's been an overabundance of music revolving around steppy breaks, emotive melodies and almost orgasmic female vocals - the Hyph Mngo Formula if you will - "4D" impresses via the simplicity in production, eschewing layers of emotive musicality for a basic fairytale chord wrapped in snapping percussion, insistent bass and that all important vocal refrain. B Side excursion "MTI" is perhaps the stronger track, fuzzed out textures bubbling amidst the plughole drip of bass textures and subtle rhythms. It's hard to pin a musical style on the two tracks here, which is what makes so much music these days so exciting.

Review: Since appearing on Jamie xx's Essential Mix last year, anticipation has been building for the release of Welsh producer Koreless's "Lost In Tokyo", and it finds itself on the logical home of Jacques Greene's Vase imprint. Sharing the same sense of melody as the Canadian tour de force, Koreless manages to take water droplet synths and a breathy vocal shrouded in reverb and construct a tense slow burner without the addition of any beats. A remix is offered by Greene himself, a logical choice given that he has taken the young producer under his wing over the last year, and turns in a club focused remix with tumbling bass and thumping kicks in the style of his recent track "Ready". Essential stuff.
