Whilst we were sleeping, London producer Daniel Avery dropped his surprise third album, entitled “Love + Light”, via Phantasy. The 14-track record, which follows his 2018 solo album “Song For Alpha”, arrives unexpectedly, following Avery’s recent collaborations with experimental musician and Nine Inch Nails synth artis Alessandro Cortini on “Illusion of Time” LP. In his own words: “This record has been a real positive force of energy in my life, to the point where it almost formed itself in front of me. In that same spirit, I wanted to share it with you now, as soon as it was finished.” Watch the video for the album’s lead single “Infinite Future”, created by Australian designer Greg Hodgson via feedback loops.

The “Love + Light” LP is out now via Phantasy. Get it here.

Following the announcement of his long-awaited second album “Song For Alpha”, London-based producer Daniel Avery has shared a glacial animated video for his track “Slow Fade”. The video was created by Flat-e, the London design studio that has previously helmed videos and live visuals for the likes of Jon Hopkins, Nathan Fake, Jamie Lidell and Clark.

Speaking about the video, Avery said “The thing I admire about Flat-e is that they recognise the beauty in mystery. They create worlds into which you can fall with your eyes closed”, while Flat-e had this to say: “To create the video for Slow Fade we used a combination of techniques. Our idea was to create something structural with no tangible sense of scale and then to degrade the footage throughout the video (a slow fade). We wanted to create something akin to watching chemical reactions or seeing the start of nuclear fusion in slow motion at macro level.”

The 14-track “Song For Alpha” LP will drop on April 6th via Phantasy. Pre-order it here.

Five years after his critically acclaimed debut album “Drone Logic”, London-based producer Daniel Avery returns to Phantasy for a four-track limited edition 12” vinyl EP, “Slow Fade”, featuring the title track and first single from his much-anticipated second album “Song For Alpha”, set for release on April 6th. The 14-track “Song For Alpha” LP is Avery’s exploration of the space in which home listening and club music intersect, in no small part inspired by his transient life spent between nightclubs, flights, the passenger seats of cars and hotel rooms. He confirms, “Drone Logic’s spiritual home was the dancefloor. This record’s is definitely the road. Those late nights and hazy mornings, finding inspiration beyond the fog.”

Our first taste from the upcomomg record comes in the form of “Slow Fade”, a great track that captures the expanded foundations of Avery’s sonic palette. Arresting club moments linger under the surface, but the focus is on the smudged ambience that underpin Avery’s grasp on rave euphoria. Give it a spin above.

The “Slow Fade” EP is out today via Phantasy. Pick up your 12” here.

London-based producer Daniel Avery is next in line to contribute a mix to !K7’s long-running DJ-Kicks series. Across its 78 minutes the mix represents his three years spent on the road since the release of his excellent debut album “Drone Logic” in 2013 on Erol Alkan’s wildly psychedelic Phantasy label, but also the time he recently had in the studio.

“The music that always hits hardest is what I’d consider to be unreal,” Avery notes, “something that sounds like it comes from another place entirely and moves at its own pace. I want to create those moments where opening your eyes on a dance floor becomes difficult. When the outside world is nothing more than a distant thought.”

Here’s a striking animated visual for ambient closing track “Space Echo”, one of three new tracks he recorded exclusively for the mix. The video was created by Kevin Freeney.

“DJ​-​Kicks: Daniel Avery” arrives on November 11th on !K7 Records. Pre-order it here.

The “Sensation/Clear” 12” will drop on November 27th, while the digital version will come out on December 4 via Phantasy. Pre-order your 12” here.

London-based singer Kelly Lee Owens may not be a name that sounds familiar to many of you, but we have a pretty strong intuition that’s about to change. She has already contributed vocals to three songs on Daniel Avery’s excellent debut album “Drone Logic”, used to play bass for UK indie pop outfit The History of Apple Pie, and now Kelly Lee Owens dropped her debut solo track, the wonderfully ethereal “Lucid”, which was co-produced with Phantasy Sound’s Ghost Culture. It’s certainly a promising start for the talented singer. Give “Lucid” a spin above and drive slow.
