Lefolk is audio/video artist Leif Folkvord of Grand Rapids, Michigan USA. Sven Swift (12rec) told me years ago to check his work out - at the time Leif had been doing some fabulously designed and unique sounding work which instantly caught me off-guard as it seemed to sit in a very different place to a lot of the scenes at the time. Intermitter is a very minimal work of melodic synth structures and crisp 4/4 beats with very subtle variations in between, both beautiful and ass-kicking in one fell swoop.

In Bokeh, Wil Bolton patiently crafted six tracks, where processed field recordings and reverberated synthesizers melodies are carefully balanced.
Chimes, bar-like talks, distant traffic or whispers from the wind frame the story of this release in a very small location. We are only one step away from saying that the artist takes us in his privacy with Bokeh ; and I'll go for it.
Very personal and sensitive, this album takes place behind the closed doors of Bolton's near environment.
