It’s difficult to pin down exactly what Public Information does.
The London-via-Yorkshire label only kicked off last year, but between archival recordings (a compilation of music by early musique concrete composer F.C. Judd) and more cutting-edge fare (Ekoplekz, No UFO’s), their stylistic touchstones are already broadly distributed.
Enter newcomer Austin Cesear, whose forthcoming LP for the label manages to take bold steps onto the dancefloor whilst retaining a link to the dreamier, druggier exertions of his labelmates. ‘Cloud Hall’, which you can stream below, is a perfect example of that balance: it opens with gorgeously diffuse, delicately suspended clouds of sound, before giving way to a crumbling kick pattern not dissimilar to the earthen beats of house operators like Kassem Mosse.
