INKKE Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 14 August 2016, Inkke

Producer Inkke (aka Russell Patterson) has been carving out a respectable name for himself on the Glasgow scene, running his FWDK club night at Glasgow School of Art and providing local DJs with a steady stream of music.

Meanwhile, further afield his own sets have been aired on everything from NRK (Norway’s equivalent of the BBC) to Prague station Radio Wave.
Previous offerings boast a sparse electronic sound which strays into jazz on the track Euphoric Acid, and incorporates elements of early nineties rave on Hardcore. And while his most recent ep, Secret Palace, continues the minimalistic tendency, it has a playful, sound-design component

Recently released on LuckyMe Records, it is a further seal of approval coming from the team which launched the careers of leading Scottish electronic acts Hudson Mohawke, Rustie and S-Type. Inkke is also due to appear on the bill of the label’s festival extravaganza, which takes place at Edinburgh’s Sneaky Pete’s venue on 19 August. Be prepared for a quality experience.

Acrylic Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 24 July 2016, Acrylic

Since supporting The View on 1 January, Acrylic have gone on to win over audiences at key Scottish venues including King Tut’s, Nice’n’Sleazy, Fat Sam’s, Sneaky Pete’s and The Electric Circus.

Moreover, the Glasgow-based five piece have also been picking up plays from the likes of Dermot O’Leary on Radio 2 and the Roddy Hart Show on Radio Scotland.

Although they describe themselves as alternative indie-rock, the band have a more subtle sound than many of the acts who would put themselves in that category. On their new single, Overrun, the vocals suggest a crooner-ish yearning, while a jangly guitar provides a touch of summer lightness. The track, which was released on Friday is mixed by veteran producer Paul Savage, and comes a week after the band played Glasgow’s St Luke’s Festival.

Acrylic venture out of the Central Belt to play the Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival on 5 August. Listen at www.acrylicmusic.co.uk/single/
