Welsh young’un Koreless dropped in on the Young Turks show on NTS this week to talk about his recent EP and play a few tracks.

Chatting to his label bosses, who put out the Koreless EP Yugen in May, Lewis Roberts talked about his upcoming dates at SunSplash and Parklife festivals, mentioned a few influences – like Keith Fullerton Whitman and Steve Reich – and previewed a song that didn’t make it onto the EP.

Tentatively called ‘Blue Blue’, the track – which appears around 48 minutes in – is a choppy and insistent, but ultimately rather soft and pastoral slice of electronica that wouldn’t sound out of place on the Border Community label.

Lewis also played ‘Ache’ by budding art-R&B singer Twigs and a recording of African tribal music made by ethnographer Hugh Tracey.

Listen back or download the show on the NTS website or Soundcloud.

Koreless was recently added to the bill on the Red Bull Music Academy stage at Sheffield’s Tramlines festival, alongside German DJ/producer Tensnake and UK talent Throwing Snow. Listen to a track from Koreless’ Yugen EP, ‘Last Remnants’.
