The Nicolas Jaar associate is set to release his first LP via Other People in February.
The first full-length from Valentin Stip, Sigh, will see release on Other People next month.
A friend and musical associate of DARKSIDE member and Other People chief Nicolas Jaar, Stip is in many ways an artist in the same mold. At 21, he's already toured with Jaar (who's not much older) and released a few EPs on Jaar's old label Clown & Sunset while in college. A pianist by trade, Stip makes frequent and impressionistic use of the instrument on Sigh, combining it with electronic textures and subtle beats. The album will be one of two full-lengths on Other People in the first part of this year—the Russian producer Vtgnike will release an album called Dubna through the imprint around the same time.
