Following the footsteps of her SUPER MILD split album with TENTENKO (TAL15) from 2019, Tokyo producer KOPY makes a welcome return to TAL with a new EP full of gritty wonders and buzzing rhythm structures. Eternal EP presents two of her new tracks plus luminous remix appearances by Elena Colombi, Harmonious Thelonious and Dynamo Dreesen & SJ Tequilla.
KOPY sums it up: „For Fujiko, I had an aggressive spaciousness in mind. The track LOK made me feel like my feet were firmly on the ground.“
The pièce de résistance of the entire EP might be the extended reworking by Elena Colombi (Osàre! Editions), who in her debut appearance in the producer’s chair offers up a cinematic bricolage, inspired by dreams and scraps of intimate, cartoonish ambiences. The eight minute long journey is full of space, swirling alarm clocks and candid evocations of imaginary creatures and environments crossed with diverse snippets of KOPY’s two original tracks.
Harmonious Thelonious who has already shared the stage with KOPY at Düsseldorfs Salon des Amateurs, contributes a trademark HT remix which combines infectious danceable beats with injections of oddness and raw beauty.
For their KOPY KONTRAST mix Dynamo Dreesen and SJ Tequilla drew inspiration from a fulminant Kopy live set in Osaka which they had witnessed while being on a tour in Japan.
The 12″EP is lavishly presented, with a fully illustrated jacket and inner sleeve design by Sarah Szscesny.
