Esofact, the collaborative duo featuring Urple Eeple (Peter Farr) and Isturite’s (Kevin Welch), both with history of prior recordings under their separate monikers themselves, last week (Dec 13, 2019) released a new single under their collaborative name titled ‘Blocks’. It’s from their upcoming self-titled EP available in 2020 from the Chillage label. Its fluid reciprocation from jazzy psychedelic atmospherics to punchy vibes makes this a pleasant track for the dance floor, to bounce your head to or both….and worthy of support and a feature.
The following is an excerpt from their press release. Listen to the track below.
Based in California and Los Angeles respectively, Farr and Welch met in their teens and would go to endless festivals together, teaching each other about music production throughout the years. They both played the guitar as youngsters and later fell in love with electronic music through early rave culture. They eventually decided to collaborate and released their first single as Esofact in 2014 releasing tracks such as ‘I’ve Got That’ and ‘Money’.
Between them, the duo has performed at a string of festivals including Treefort Music Fest, Stilldream Festival and Emissions Bass Culture Festival, sharing stages with the likes of Thundercat, Nosaj Thing, Aesop Rock, and Plastician to name a few.
Speaking of the track they explain: “Blocks is a piece we wrote about grappling with modern society’s obsession with putting you into a box. The music industry has this obsession with labeling you. “Oh, you make bass music.” “Oh, this sounds like future bass.” “Oh, this is beats.” We wrote blocks to break genre boundaries as our way of breaking out of the predefined labels the music industry seems obsessed with sticking onto you. Sometimes music is just music, and you need to sit back and enjoy it. Turn off the part of your brain that wants to label what it is, and simply enjoy it.”
