Darkstar have fully succeeded in that interesting transformation they’ve been pulling off for a while now, going from dubstep producers to electronic pop performers. Rope / Folk pairs them with composer Gwilym Gold, tasked with accompanying Holly Blakey’s contemporary dance performance (see the sleeve art). 12” on The Vinyl Factory.
Two prime tracks from Gwilym Gold’s recent record A Paradise get the acoustic treatment here on Greener World (Alt Version). Stripping away numerous sonic layers leaves the intimate core of these compositions fully visible: gorgeous. Limited edition of 300 12” copies, released by The Vinyl Factory.

Gwilym Gold has produced his debut album, entitled A Paradise. And what a contemporary record it is, combining Gold’s stately talents at the piano with London beat-scene production from the likes of Darkstar and Hyetal. And Nico Muhly even brings the strings! An impressively effective blend of styles, on the Brille label.
