About the Release:
From the start of this debut release from Amsterdam-based Lapien, one conceives that the young producer is conscientious. â€˜Anversâ€™, the French name for Belgian port Antwerp, starts in unassuming manner, synths swimming, bass pondering, a gentle cymbal tapping. Itâ€™s the sound of thoughtful admiration, as if Lapien is standing in front of the cityâ€™s towering gothic cathedral, motionless in the midst of a now modern metropolis.
But then, as loops spring uncomfortably back and an insistent beat thunders into the fray, one realizes that this is no time for admiring architecture; this is a night drive through the city â€“ coarse orange streetlamps, chrome blue reflections, droplet-stained window panes. It is, also, at an unusually and unsettlingly fast pace, dragging its deeper house timbres and textures upwards.
Conforceâ€™s mix is anything but restful: alarms in the distance fall around offbeat rhythms of increasingly diverse dynamics, bringing rain down on the city at night.
To end, Fred Pâ€™s composition is heavy & uncompromising; yet it quivers with synths washed in beautiful, calming ambience.
After the epic launch night with JOY ORBISON in NOV we are back for our first date of 2012 on Thursday 2nd FEB. The guest act will be announced in the New Year and trust us it will be all about the music.
We will be again using the great basement space at Life 2-4 Old Street, London, EC1V 9AA.
NORTHERN PURPOSE team up with production duo HOMEPARK to bring you monthly events in and around London.
The idea is to host nights for music lovers. Using intimate venues/ spaces. Strictly limited capacity. Guest acts will be announced closer to the event date.
