Album Release: 5th June 2020, via Night Time Stories
‘The apex of the LP arrives at Ritual and the Coby Sey-featuring track Alien, both of which see James at his most explorative, driving tension into the album’
– Crack Magazine.
London based producer and composer, Leifur James, just released his newest single, ‘Ritual’. This single is his most club ready song yet and has come out exactly one month before his long awaited album, ‘Angel in Disguise’. Due to release June 5th, 2020, ‘Angel in Disguise’ is going to be James’ best album yet, produced via Night Time Stories.
The most recently released single, ‘Angel in Disguise‘ was both a cinematic and audio-visual piece. Following that, ‘Ritual’ is another visual piece that portrays circles and life moving through the motions as Leifur James dives further into the electronic realm. With machine sounds and otherworldly elements to lose yourself in, James’ has a unique take on electronica and adds deep techno to create depth.
‘Angel in Disguise’ provides a masterful blend of harmonic vocals from James, as well as nuanced electronic soundscapes and vibrant modular based percussion. This exciting piece of work has seen support already from CRACK, Mixmag, DJ Mag, Boiler Room 4:3 and more. James is expected to make waves with this release, exhibiting his discerning ear and production craft on a seminal label.
Angel in Disguise out June 5th, 2020
New single, ‘Ritual’ follows the video for the album title-track, ‘Angel in Disguise’, a collaborative piece with Balázs Simon (previously producing the critically acclaimed ‘Wurlitzer’ project which saw loads of support from the likes of Boiler Room, CLASH, Motionographer, the UK and Berlin Music Video Awards, the London Short Film Festival, Dublin International Film Festival and more. ‘Angel in Disguise’ will release a big statement- an audio-visual representation of our damaged relationship with planet earth. The piece stitches James’ complex emotional chords and Balazs’ desire to highlight the fragility of the world into a beautiful, short visual tale.
James aims to begin touring as soon as possible, and will start with UK and European venues. His tour has been rescheduled to October 2020, kicking it off in Amsterdam’s Melkweg then heading to this biggest London show to date at Village Underground, plus Berlin’s Burg Schnabel, and AB Brussels with further dates yet to be announced.
