'Build Me Up' EP Out 20 May

Raffertie - 'Build Me Up' EP Out 20 May

Raffertie will release a new EP, Build Me Up, on 20 May - head to Pitchfork for an exclusive first listen to the title track.

If Raffertie's early releases - picked out for support by such razor sharp ears as Nick Grimshaw, Mary Anne Hobbs and Huw Stephens' - marked him out as a singular, exciting new voice in electronic music, Build Me Up constitutes a thrilling new level of achievement from the young producer. The big news is that he's added his own vocals to his intensely atmospheric production, and it's a move that's paid off and then some. His mused, heartfelt singing adds a personal depth and emotional punch that brings real weight to his latest single. There's a sense that his production has stepped up in turn; Build Me Up is startling in its simultaneous heaviness and delicacy, a combination that makes it strikingly original.

Like his contemporaries Jamie Lidell and How To Dress WellRaffertie is part of a vanguard that is changing electronic music for the better. Their experiments in adding unabashed feeling to a form that's often slightly cool in temperature constitute a genuine paradigm shift - they are pushing things forward.

Build Me Up is available to pre-order now at the Ninjashop and iTunes.
