about

Back as a solo artist on Hotflush for the first time since 2011, Braille returns with 4 smooth cuts of UK-inflected house and electronica.
One half of Sepalcure (with Machinedrum), Praveen Sharma’s solo project, Braille, has appeared on labels including Friends of Friends and Rush Hour, as well as Hotflush. Appearing here with his first solo EP since 2015, Sharma shows his versatility and keen ear for a melody with 4 contrasting additions to his catalogue.

Stand Still and Needs are the 4/4 touchstones here, although you can forget typical linear structures with this producer. The familiar sound palette of 909 hats and cut up vocals is reimagined by Braille into something totally distinctive, drawing on varied influences and vast studio experience. Igloo, meanwhile, shoots off on a breaks-inspired tangent, keeping those deep vocal edges and stop-start structure. IOU rounds off the EP with an eyes-down moment of piano-led introspection set to a backdrop of frenetic breakbeats.

A long time coming, the return of Braille is overdue and inspired in equal measure.
