Clark announces new EP and Scala show

By | Published on Wednesday 4 July 2012


Following the release of his very good ‘Iradelphic’ album earlier this year, Clark has announced the release of a new EP, entitled ‘Fantasm Planes’, featuring three reworked versions of tracks from the album and three brand new ones. That will be out via Warp on 3 Sep and followed on 8 Sep by a headline show at The Scala in London.

Speaking about the EP, Clark said: “Ian Brown has always loved the sound of trumpets. I’ve occasionally liked the sound of flutes. And bass. Analogue bass and psychedelic melodies to trip out to on the dance floor. No hippy shit though. This EP is more about conjuring the full mind-distortion that you get when you hear this music on loud sound systems, that’s sort of what ‘Fantasm Planes’ is about. Refocusing the album into the context of metric rave gear, but with those full, saturated textures of ‘Iradelphic’ still playing a vital part”.
