Always with an ear to the (under)ground, Gilles Peterson has often championed key artists emerging from the post-dubstep fallout. James Blake, Mount Kimbie and Koreless have been bigged up by the man, and now he’s releasing the first album from Gang Colours on his Brownswood imprint. ‘The Keychain Collection’ is a sensuous LP of love songs and well engineered instrumentals. It’s all warm piano keys and shivering synth textures underpinned by downtempo, off-kilter beats and delicate low-end frequencies. Soft spoken lyrics and chopped-up vocals sit alongside static crackles and bleeps that fall into the mix like drops of rain. Lush.
