Campion | Tengelmann
Bristol-based producer Campion has been quietly toiling away on his productions for some months now, producing slow, deep and discoid house with a glossiness to it reminiscent of 6th Borough Project’s sweeter moments. ‘Tengelmann’, for instance, clocks in at 102 bpm, pitching it somewhere between the current breed (glut?) of soundcloud-disco-edit-types on one hand and the older-and-beardier Balearic crowd on the other, sensibly steering clear of the slightly saccharine sound pioneered by labels like Claremont 56 to find a home on more house-oriented labels like Audio Parallax and Wazi Wazi. With the ‘Apparitions EP’ dropping on May 25th on the former, the rest of 2012 looks busy for this promising producer.
Campion also makes music with fellow Bristol resident Seka as Foxtail and Fern, both of which you should be following already. Be sure to peruse Campion’s soundcloud, particularly new track ‘Kicks and Lovers’ - one for all the John Talabot fans out there.
