Cutters Records are pleased to announce the debut vinyl release from their latest signing, the LA based artist KAUF. Since 2011 he has been honing his own dark twist on modern electronic music, with heavy drum production, dense, cinematic synth buildups and high-pitched, echo-laden vocals. His aesthetic lies somewhere in between the worlds of slow house, industrial dance and drony indie pop earning comparisons with the likes of CARIBOU, MATTHEW DEAR and TORO Y MOI.
An internet-only single caught the ears of Cut Copy's frontman Dan Whitford, who promptly signed him for a forthcoming EP, entitled AS MUCH AGAIN on Cutters Records. The first taste of this EP comes in the form of the Relocate 12", including remixes by Psychemagik, Nile Delta and Moons.
Kauf's 'RELOCATE' is an dark anthem for the late-night-slow-dance, featuring sparse metallic percussion, chugging synth bass and vocals drowning in a sea of reverb. PSYCHEMAGIK take this vibe and run with it for their 7 minute house tinged rework. Cutters' own NILE DELTA ups the energy with his signature acid-injection and MOONS (No Recordings) rounds out the release. Relocate and remixes will be available on 12" VINYL only, released 24 June on Cutters Records.
