Our second premiere of the day comes from Glasgow pair Pentland Park, who feature on Everything Will Be OK for their biggest body of work, ‘Conscious,’ which includes four original tracks and four remixes. We premiere a misty jazz-inspired groove that is firing from all cylinders with soaring breaks and deep-set subs.
Pentland Park is the Glaswegian duo of Rjay and Kris, who formed the alias after holding down residencies with their respective projects at Glasgow’s Don’t Drop party series back in 2013. Since then, the pair have featured on lineups across the UK’s most sought-after club spaces including Sub Club, Wire, and The Cause, as well as Berlin’s Burg Schnabel.
Running off the back of the debut EP on La La‘s Brand New Records, the duo now head to Everything Will Be OK with a statement of intent as they put forward four original tracks backed by four remixes across their The project sees Lake People, Benjamin Fröhlich, Fort Romeau’s and Brigade on remix duties.
We premiere ‘6am Again’, a murky trip through a smoke-filled basement in the early hours as Pentland Park fires across a flurry of menacing breakbeats and gutwrenching sub-bass. Although the track is powered by brute force, it remains hazy and somniferous as blissful pads slide across grisly low-end power and jazz samples ooze through the system. It’s got one foot in the chill-out area and the other cemented on the dancefloor, but wherever or however you absorb these frequencies you’re in for a sweet treat.
