Premiere: Orphic – Macoubea


E2-E8 shine a light on new, local talent in East London with their fourth label release.

A fresh breeze drifted through the trees, rustling the final remaining leaves that adorned the branches. Summer and autumn would soon exchange hands and the shades of the forest would turn from bright green hues to brown and orange. The animals prepared themselves to burrow away in winter, making their homes ready for the ensuing hibernation that would soon take hold. Their world would sleep until the seasons changed and the sun blazed down again…


A year on from their last release, an EP courtesy of Hems, locally-indebted label E2-E8 turn their attention back to new talent bubbling up in the East London Underground. Shelter is the work of Orphic, a duo made up of producers Kieran Jandu and Babak Faraji, who are exploring the depths of techno. Slick, elegant and crystal clear, the four tracks travel through deep, dubbed-out moments to peak-time offerings and vibrant, bubbling electronics, finished off with a remix from Bunker and Clone affiliate Marco Shuttle.


Shelter will be released on E2-E8 on 1st September.
