Today, Makeness releases his debut album, Loud Patterns. Crafting tracks which make a virtue of disparate influences, Scottish producer Kyle Molleson manages to pull off something difficult: songs which have been tirelessly worked on, although sound loose-limbed and to-the-point. Loud Patterns is noticeably indebted to house and techno; there are 4/4 rhythms, and a no-nonsense directness that harks back to the Detroit pioneers. Channeling avant-garde experimentalism and an outsiders interest in pop, Molleson embraces the distance between those two poles.

Stream and/or Purchase Loud Patterns

Loud Patterns arrives after a series of releases that have established his particular, in-between approach to dance-minded music. He put out two EPs on Manchester-based imprint Handsome Dad, a one-off single with Adult Jazz and self-released Temple Works EP; Whities also released a limited-edition white label of a Minor Science dub of one of his tracks. Following the release of Loud Patterns today, Makeness will embark on a tour with label kin Unknown Mortal Orchestra across North America and parts of Europe.
