ARA KOUFAX have worked together since bonding in high school, introducing their new project in 2014 with Brenda: a feature of Cutters Records' Oceans Apart compilation. Supported by the likes of Tim Sweeney and BBC Radio 1, Brenda paved way for the release of the pairâ€™s eponymous EP: a three-track love letter to bubbling, textured electronic music from all corners of the globe.
Now, they return to Cutters Records to share ADULT CONCEPTS: a celebration of the yearâ€™s end and a snapshot of what can be expected of Ara Koufax in 2016.
Adult Concepts is the sound of coping mechanisms and the lure of quitting. Originally written as an introduction to the duosâ€™s live show, the releaseâ€™s titular track emerged from rehearsals in a sunburnt, claustrophobic apartment. At its core, Adult Concepts is an exercise in building full, driving house music from a bedrock of noise: a hangover of Spacemen 3 worship and lack of restraint.
The EPâ€™s second track, Makers, is propelled by a buoyant, chugging rhythm section - nodding with love to Omar S, Motor City Drum Ensemble and the coming of warmer weather. Standing as a tonal counterpoint to Adult Concepts, the b-side fluctuates in intensity: embracing the quiet and chaotic in equal measure.
ARA KOUFAX - Adult Concepts - Out digitally December 4th on Cutters Records.
