London based experimental producer and composer Leifur James unveils his latest offering, ‘Ritual’, coming around one month prior to his album, ‘Angel in Disguise’, due for release 5 June 2020 via Night Time Stories (sister label to ‘LateNightTales’).
‘Ritual’ is a sonic portrayal of circles and life moving through motions that sees Leifur dive further into the electronic realm. Machine sounds and ethereal elements to get lost in, his take on electronica and deep techno adds new depth to the album narrative.
The album will have a blend of harmonic vocals from James himself as well as nuanced electronic soundscapes and vmodular-based percussion.
‘Ritual’ is a collaborative piece with Balázs Simon (previously producing the ‘Wurlitzer’ project which saw support from the likes of Boiler Room, CLASH, Motionographer, the UK and Berlin Music Video Awards, the London Short Film Festival, Dublin International Film Festival and more).
‘Angel In Disguise‘ is one of the releases biggest statements yet - an audio-visual exploration of our damaged relationship with planet earth, soundtracked by James’ melodies questioning our failure to respect mother nature. The piece stitches his emotional chords and Balazs’ desire to highlight the fragility of the world into a short visual tale.
Delving into UK and European venues to showcase his ever-evolving live show, James’ tour has been rescheduled and will kick off October 2020 in Amsterdam’s Melkweg, before heading to his biggest London show to date at Village Underground, plus Berlin’s Burg Schnabel, and AB Brussels with further dates yet to be announced.
