Astrid Williamson: Pulses with new LP, Remixes & Dates



One Little Indian’s Astrid Williamson releases her brand new single, ‘Dance’ on the 9th of April and it includes Lapalux & Second Date remixes. Listen to the Lapalux remix HERE:

Astrid’s new album Pulse, on which she collaborates with Eno man Leo Abrahams has been rightly recognised as a sonic sea-change for Astrid – the seeds for which were sown upon witnessing guitarist/ambient man Leo Abrahams perform as part of Brian Eno’s Pure Scenius project at last year’s Brighton Festival. She returns for two dates in April.

Live dates.

The Vortex, London 4th April

The Latest Bar, Brighton 6th March

The David and Bathsheba referencing Dance provides one of the Pulse album’s most alluring images, and the song itself is released as a single on 9th April, backed with two striking new mixes by Lapalux and Second Date. Lapalux – aka 22 year old Stuart Howard – debuted on Picture Music’s “Many Faces Out of Focus”, selling out on cassette in under two hours. Now, with a release on Flying Lotus’s Brainfeeder label in the works, and a huge positive response to his Gwen Stefani Luxurious bootleg, 2012 is sure to be Lapalux’s break through year. If the raised cameraphones at his Plastic People show with Kutmah, Flying Lotus and Martyn are anything to go by, the live set is pretty impressive too.

Second Date is Henry Birkbeck, a London-based producer who generally operates at the slower end of the dance register. His production places emphasis on intricate beats, warm bass and the arpeggiating piano which has become his trademark – somewhere between the balearic disco of Delorean and the piano chopping of James Blake.
