For their third EP Featurette, shadowy Wolverhampton duo Letherette come to Ninja Tune ahead of a debut album in 2013.
Drawing on Bangalter-inflected house but giving it a rumble and wing, Letherette make infectious, beat-driven music which is as fun and un-self-conscious as it is clever and technically cutting edge. From the exuberant cut-up boogie of “Warstones”, through moments of ethereal beauty on the four-to-the-floor stomper “Ettewards”, on into delicate, poised “Surface”, (featuring vocals from Jed + Lucia) and finally the spaced hip hop of “Wecko”, the childhood friends use the Featurette EP to show their range and diversity as well as their technical nous.
After two releases on the excellent Ho Tep Records, an appearance on Brownswood Electric, a couple of stunning remixes (for Machinedrum and Bibio) and a fantastic DJ mix for BTS Radio, plus support from the likes of Benji B, Gilles Peterson and Brackles, gigs and festival appearances across Europe this summer, and now a trio of fantastic EPs - Letherette are ready to make the musical leap to the big time.
