∆utumn, the self-titled debut EP from rising live UK act Delta ∆utumn released by Flood Studio, is available now on iTunes and streaming platforms.
Smashing hip hop, glitch, pop, rock, jazz and electroacoustic compositional techniques together to create a sound that sits somewhere between James Blake, Flying Lotus and Thundercat, the five-track release is a fresh and welcome addition to the UK’s already exceptional electronic music offering.
Initially conceived as a studio-only project by musician-composer Robbie Moore and producer-engineer Luke Morrish-Thomas, Delta ∆utumn has since expanded to take in guitarist Thomas Seminar Ford and drummer Ric Yarborough, each augmenting their setups with an array of electronics and triggers.
∆utumn comprises of five strongly crafted songs, spanning a multitude of styles: shimmering and climbing arrangements (‘Sabai’), radio-friendly slow-funk (‘Do It Again’), multi-faceted glitch-hop (‘Arp 24.4’), hazy cinematic soundscapes (‘Fold’) and fast and frenetic jazz-rock-rap (‘Citrus Quotes’).
The EP was recorded using a mixture of analogue and digital, processed and acoustic, retro and contemporary techniques at Moore and Morrish-Thomas’ own Flood Studio, located in Digbeth – the beating creative heart of Birmingham, UK.
Delta ∆utumn have performed a handful of exclusive live UK venue and festival shows since inception, and the act has received acclaim to date for a brand new collaboration with respected UK hip hop MC Juice Aleem on final EP track ‘Citrus Quotes’, and for a remix of Charlotte Church’s 2013 single ‘Like A Fool’.
