BLUT's Catch of the Week: Koreless


Niklas Rademacher, production assistant at BLUT, on why 'Agor' inspires him

BLUT's Catch of the Week: Koreless

New Year, new series! Welcome to our 'Catch of the Week'.

Who doesn't like music recommendations from random strangers? Well this might be your new favorite spot! Each week a member of our super cool team will present their favorite album. And be a stranger no more, because you know what they say: You are what you listen to! 

While we're still in the relatively early stages of the new year, we might as well start with our favourite albums from 2021! 

Only a few producers have inspired and fascinated me over the years the way Koreless has. 

'Agor' is the producer's debut album after already being in the electronic music industry for 10 years and comes 8 years after his last EP.

I only discovered him in 2020 but quickly fell in love with his very unusual style which is marked by his extremely limited use of actual drums whether they are electronic or acoustic. 'Agor' follows these footsteps as well, with only one of nine tracks involving them. However, the album is very rhythmic and melodic which is exactly what fascinated me from the start.

On 'Agor', Koreless now also manages to take his synthetic sound design skills to another level with its ultra clean synth lines and textures which reach from massive round basses to shiny metallic sparkles and harpsichord like sounds. 

To me the album sounds like the cover looks and therefore reminds me of very clean and digital textures with natural sounds shimmering through. 

My favourite track is 'White Picked Fence' which was released with a music video that was the directing debut for another well known artist, FKA twigs. The song combines the ultra clean harpsichord like sounds with a female voice which evokes a tribal impression to me and simultaneously includes flickering synths and a massive bass. The build up is equally beautiful to me.
