LISTEN: Aymeric De Tapol

Preview a track from the latest release on Brussels label Vlek

Brussels label Vlek have been responsible for releasing some great electronic music in recent years, shining a light upon the city’s own music scene via the likes of Cupp Cave, Bepotel and Sagat – each with their own distinctive takes on house and techno – as well as putting out early music from the ever-intriguing Wanda Group, who has since gone on to release music through labels like Opal Tapes and NNA Tapes.

Their latest release, upcoming this spring, is from the Brussels-based Aymeric De Tapol, a prolific producer whose previous work has included synthesiser experiments based around the Ina-GRM’s Coupigny synthesiser (2012’s Talking With A Dinosaur and, in last year’s Méridiens Tape, music based around environmental recordings made in Senegal, Mali and Istanbul. His Vlek release is the label’s fifteenth and is titled Winter Dance, and features a pair of particularly huge, sprawling instrumentals – one of which, ‘Temple Gauche’, you can listen to below – set amid a record of intricately detailed and assembled drone pieces.
