Chris Baio of Vampire Weekend has dropped his first EP of electronic jams. I agree with others that this is more a release for fans of Caribou than of Vampire Weekend, which is great for me as I like the previous and not the latter.
The full album should drop soon and probably also have a limited version so there’s that to consider as well.
Cool stuff though, I like this direction. As an additional note his previous EP is already sold out, so you know, getchaone.
Limited to 500 Copies. The ever restless Baio makes his Club Mod debut in the shape of a two-pronged pitchfork that is 'On and On and On and On / Missive'. Ethereal, melodic dance music that appeals as much to the head as it does the heart and hips, it's another fascinating evolution in the work of Vampire Weekend bassist Chris Baio. Baio's nightlife shows a more personal, cerebral yet similarly ecstatic side of the now London-based producer. Baio's Club Mod EP mines a similarly deep dancefloor spirit to the likes of Caribou (especially as Daphni), Four Tet, Luke Abbot et al, one which sounds just as inspired in the club as it does in the headphones. Remixes come from house mainstay Neville Watson and playful Swedish producer HNNY.
