Working across a variety of media John Lemke explores all things sonic through live performance, sound design and his work as a documentary film composer. 'The Walizka EP' is his latest solo release on Denovali Records.
Previously released digitally as a teaser for John’s debut album, ‘The Walizka EP’ actually presents newer material, progressing the electro-acoustic nature of ‘People Do’ towards more dub drenched territories. Refining John’s blend of prepared piano and field recordings with hand crafted beats and swampy bass lines, this deeply moody and danceable release bends genres with refreshing ease.
The EP is furthermore enhanced by a second half of remixes by fellow Denovali artists Piano Interrupted, SaffronKeira and Petrels and the ever elusive Everyday Dust. Far from conventional remixes, these pieces fall more in the category of re-imaginations, complementing the EP’s first, more rhythm anchored half with a coherent ambient counterpart.
