Koreless turn out two new tracks on the Young Turks label. TT / Love finds the Koreless sound sidestepping away from the big sweeping cinematic nature of recent releases, instead delving head-first back into the club environment. These are two big tracks, though the radically cut-up vocal on Love shows that this doesn’t mean a drop in imagination.
7/10 Laurie Staff review, 24 July 2015
Ah, Koreless, where have you been since Yugen? Playing with string quartets? Taking coke in sheds? That’s all well and good, but without some new music we’re all left stranded, trying and failing to guess which direction you’ll take next. TT / Love suddenly appears, and we realise you’re more or less the same Koreless we saw then.
TT begins the 12” with that stuttered vocal sample thing that was crystallised on Yugen, with a handful of percussion giving it a strong rhythmic drive, like if you concatenated ‘Ivana’ and ‘Sun’ minus that sunscorched synth line. This is the better of the two, with a rushing feel that probably will make it onto the dancefloor, despite the lack of heavy beat elements. Love crosses wires between this and almost Radiophonic synth techniques to make a more uneasy, tense slab of beatless beat. DJs take note, these will be great for set breakdowns. Otherwise, something more substantial has got to come soon, K!
