Since making a glowing first impression on Insomniac Records last year, house music dynamo Bleu Clair dives deep to deliver his latest project on the imprint, the Prelude EP.
The record marks Bleu Clair's biggest release to date and offers a taste of what's to come from the young, Indonesian beatsmith. Opting to enlist bubbling talent from his own backyard, he is on a quest to experiment with eccentric sounds.
Clair delivered the first taste of his EP back in July, a sultry single dubbed “Have Me All,” highlighting Jakarta-based vocalist Jelita. A gentle percussive beat surrounds Jelita's sensual vocals, creating a steamy late-night house tune. Then, switching things up in “Amani," he reconnected with Indonesian compatriot Jargen to deliver a thumping tech house track with ritualistic chants in a club-ready cut.
Next up, Jakartan singer-songwriter Teza Sumendra was tapped in for the futuristic "Hyperspace." As otherworldly house sensibilities set sail, Sumendra’s warm, suave lyricism adds finesse.
