Sydney based producers JV & Palf share their debut Wren EP, an engaging, pulsating and genre-pushing release, and the most recent signee to October Records.
With a pressurised sonics and galloping percussion, EP opener "Don't Stop" leaves little room to catch your breath. A serious club workout with playful overtones; it works manipulated vocal samples over a wall of low end that demands attention. Second track "JBNT" explores a use of space to find it's pulse, utilising a cutting edge UK-sound palette. The EP rounds out with "Gully"; an addictive percussion workout primed for the dance floor.
JV and Palf were already fans of each other’s individual work - JV releasing under Plantlife and Palf under IljusWifmo - before meeting at a warehouse party in 2013. From there, they started sending tracks back and forth to each other online until they finished one song, which quickly turned into the Wren EP. JV (Corey Furey) & Palf (Max Palfrey) still rarely write music in the same room together, sending stems until they have something that is worth meeting up over, before putting final touches on.
“Cheese as it is, we basically communicate through the sounds… this approach allows the music to go in different directions without either of us getting caught up in our ideas. The other person might just delete it all and do something different.” JV & Palf.
Creators of forward-thinking club sounds, JV & Palf’s dynamic collaboration shines in their first release on October Records.
