Emseatee is the alias of experimental UK artist Leigh Redding. Redding’s music is influenced by “the concept of memory and nostalgia,” and artists such as Rival Consoles, Aphex Twin, Seekae, Max Cooper, Moderat, and Bonobo, among others, all of which feed into his emotive and melancholic sound. Like those artists mentioned, Redding has a knack for crafting affecting tracks that sit at the intersection of genres—house, jazz, modern classical—whilst maintaining a singular signature.
Late last month, Redding released his latest work under the Emseatee moniker, an eight-track album titled 21.06.2014. The album was conceptually written around a date, unfolding as a series of events and tracking the emotions and memory’s that took place at that time. The music is poignant and touching, flowing through engulfing synth outings, nostalgic beat cuts, and experimental introspections.
In support of the album, Redding has offered up his remix of HHNOI’s track “They Ate The Clouds,” a five-minute exercise in shimmering electronics, as today’s XLR8R download, available below.
