Think you’ve pinned down the Siteholder sound? Think again? James Welsh joins the SH crew with an immaculate melting pot of all that is good in the world. Undertones of funk, jazz, drum and bass, downtempo, house, and minimal techno all prevail in the most interesting of ways – a truly artistic masterpiece.
Indoor League kicks off with Casual Friday, and let us tell you, there’s nothing we would rather do on a low-key Friday night than put this track on repeat, smoke cigars and sip single-malted scotches into the wee hours of the morning debating the validity of existentialist philosophies. Casual Friday is a beautifully crafted piece and a perfect aperitif for our alcoholic adventure ahead.
As the haze of cigar smoke dissipatse within our screened in veranda, hints of noir-film-inspired percussion permeate the air. Audit is super groovy, vulnerable, and honest – a true hommage to Welsh’s no-nonsense production ethos. Join us at our proverbial afterhours, and don’t forget your listening shoes.
Agost, the final track of Indoor League, sinks into subterranean sterility, a perfect digestif for the evening. Stripped of all distractions, this astringent of simple flavors and textures go down with warm and inclement memories.
