We kick start 2021 with our second premiere from the MilkitSounds ‘Neigh Worries’ Various Artist EP, today featuring Irish DJ and producer, High Fidelity.
MilkitSounds is a Scottish independent brand, homegrown in the capital of the Highlands in Inverness, while also being based in the idyllic soundings of the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh. The brand and collective ethos is to shine light on artists from local communities and beyond, by either booking them to play at their excellent parties, inviting them on for a mix as part of their mix series, or releasing music on on their ever growing label.
Today it’s our second premiere of the 5 track EP, as Irish DJ and producer High Fidelity contributes his track ‘Elevation’ to the ‘Neigh Worries’ Various Artists EP, which features tracks from both Irish and Scottish producers on this exciting 5 track release.
High Fidelity, aka Robert Stapleton, is a familiar face within the Irish club scene. With icons such as Jensen Interceptor, Defekt and Aloka as his idols, Robert’s abstract electro and techno productions hugely complement the fast-paced energy found in his live sets.
A host of club and festival appearances across the Emerald Isle, including Life Festival and Higher Vision, has provided a platform to propel his distinctive performances to a wider audience. Stapleton looks back to pre-pandemic times, re-appreciating the 2 festival bookings; “A serious achievement for me personally, particularly playing the notorious Toast stage at Life Festival who has hosted an abundance of huge artists.”
This is one for the dark sweaty club, Elevation pairs pounding, rumbling kicks with rolling bass-lines and mysterious vocals. The result is a fast, industrial, all-out whopper, with heavy influences from Berlin and Copenhagen style techno.
