- The Canadian minimalist's first solo release since 2012 lands in January.
Akufen will release an untitled EP on Karat Records early next year.
The Canadian producer, real name Marc Leclair, helped plot the blueprint for minimal house throughout the late '90s and early '00s, but he hasn't released much music of late—his most recent release as Akufen came out back in 2012. The upcoming EP sees Leclair stretch out across four tracks, which range from jazzy and atmospheric to clean and glitchy.
Akufen is the best known of Leclair's five-plus aliases, which also include Horror Inc. and Noiz Slack-R. As Akufen, he's put out acclaimed tracks on Oral, Trapez and Perlon. The new EP arrives on January 4th. In the meantime, stream a version of B-side cut "Seizure Salad," which first surfaced online in 2013.
