about

Like “the final breaths of a Game Boy caught in the reeds and burbling under the waters” (NME), Luke Abbott‘s Holkham Drones has been making waves in all of the right places, and now as it finally drops in your record store of choice, the ripple effect begins to spread out across the world. ‘Holkham Drones’ looks set to catapult Luke from his provincial Norfolk outpost of the UK’s burgeoning electronic underground straight into critic’s end-of-year ‘Best Of’ lists, in one fell swoop.

Luke’s kraut-tinged hypnotic organitronica evidences an overwhelmingly warm, human and positively homemade character thanks to the inherent wonk of his boutique analogue synths and his quirky, offbeat and polyrhythmic approach to percussion. His alchemic way with tone, drone and thump seems to trigger an innate urge to dance whilst firmly eschewing all of dance music’s most tired cliches. Mojo found it to be “a richly rewarding experience”, and naturally we agree; we sincerely hope that you will too.
