Ramp Recordings will release the psychedelic beatsmith's next album in April.
Real name François Boulanger, Cupp Cave is a Belgian producer whose records put a shoegaze spin on hip-hop and slo-mo house. This makes him a perfect fit for Ramp Recordings, the London label that's home to artists like Dro Carey and FaltyDL. Boulanger will make his Ramp debut with Retina Waves, following releases on smaller labels like Vlek and Brussels' Thin Consolation. The album shows his sound continuing to develop, mostly leaving behind the syncopated rhythms of his past records for something more washed out and 4/4 based. You can watch the video "White Out," the album's closer and most ambient selection, right here:
02. Bed Slap
04. Kid's A Loner
05. Mouth Rip
06. She Smells Like Sun Rays
09. White Out
Ramp Recordings will release Retina Waves on April 9th, 2012.
