• Videos from recent Squarepusher support

    Posted by kelpe

    I recently got to support Squarepusher in my home borough at the Hackney Empire, with Chris Walmsley on drums. Here’s a couple of video clips from the night – one camera is my own that I left filming on the stage and the footage superimposed with a friend’s who happened to be filming at the time from up in the seats. There wasn’t any proper audio recording so it’s just the slightly distorted / muffled sound off the camera mic I’m afraid.

    Totally looking for some more bookings so if you’re feeling it hit music@kelpe.co.uk or sinan@elasticartists.co.uk

    “a charming plate of squashed disco… this might be Kel McKeown’s most striking set to date” BOOMKAT

    “Kelpe’s thickly produced stew seems to work over whatever template he drapes it on. Plus Neon Jung’s remix of the eponymous track is actually brilliant.” DJ MAGAZINE

  • Bags of Time EP

    Posted by kelpe

    I’m pleased to announced that I’ll be releasing a follow up to the now sold out “I Felt Fuzzy” EP on Svetlana Industries. The new EP is entitled “Bags of Time” and features 3 new original tracks and a smashing remix from Neon Jung of Magic Wire fame. You can see some artwork below by Rimrimrim and check one of the cuts “City”. None of the three original tracks will feature on my upcoming LP and are quite different in mood to what I’ve been working on for the long player. The vinyl is pressed loud as f*ck this time, by Shane at Finyl Tweek. The vinyl edition will be out on the 24th of September and the digital will follow on the 1st of October.

    I recently got a GoPro camera and decided to try it out by strapping it onto my head and running through a couple of my tracks, live at home.

    Not 100% perfect, but gives you a good view of what’s going on:

  • “I Felt Fuzzy” EP Out Now / video / launch event

    Posted by kelpe

    A few things to mention in this post, all surrounding my new EP on Svetlana Industries….

    New EP “I Felt Fuzzy” is out now on vinyl and digital via Svetlana Industries. Read a nice review on XLR8R, then maybe go to Boomkat, Bleep or Bandcamp to make the purchase – the digital edition includes Cupp Cave and Naïve Machine remixes, and the vinyl features a bonus rework from Rush Hour’s BNJMN . A free track from the EP is available here on Mixmag and there’s also a free 43 minute mix for download on Sonic Router, along with a review and interview.

    You can preview the full EP here on Earmilk or listen to the sampler below.

    Also, we got this nice video made by Jonathan Lieb:

    And then, if you’re in London come down to the launch party on the 8th of May – the flyer gives you all the details and links through to a facebook event page that will keep you up to date. There is no charge for entry.
