Cheekily, on the Facebook page for the Edmonton, Alberta-based synth-pop project Artisan Loyalist (helmed by Rob Batke), the genre designation reads “Post-Yoga”. Given the seemingly endless parade of genre splintering that is happening at the moment, it’s not a stretch to imagine that such a thing exists. However, on The Ace EP, the latest collection of tunes from Artisan Loyalist, the music definitely doesn’t sound like it’s meant to take you to a zen place. From the sitar-esque lead riff to “O, Chamelon” to the propulsive beat of “O, Chamelon (Khotin remix)”, The Ace EP is definitely something to get the feet moving.
The Ace EP is meant to serve as a teaser for what’s to come on Artisan Loyalist’s forthcoming LP, Lonely Ghost, which is set for a February 2015 release. For all of your synthy needs, give the tunes below a couple of spins.
The Ace EP will be released on October 27th through Sky Council.
