Astral Plane Recordings picked a good time to drop this new one from E.M.M.A. The warm, blissed-out wave of 'Glacé' arrives in time for spring here in the UK, its pink artwork a more intense shade of the blossom that's just started to appear on trees across the country.
The track is also a welcome counterpoint to the klang of APR's previous releases (which earned the label a high placement in our 2016 round-up), with E.M.M.A.'s lush production proving there's way more to life, and head honcho Gabe's taste, than industrial noise.
This is the London-based artist's first drop for a little while, having spent the last year putting on music production workshops for women, recording podcasts, shelling clubs and hosting the Angel Food radio show on NTS alongside Aimee Cliff. The rest of the 'Glacé' package includes a bassloaded, strung-out remix from Iglew and a divine beatless mix of the title track.
Catch the wave below and pre-order the full release, out April 7, here.
