It's been a long time coming but we're super proud to finally announce the official release date for KEDA (Mathias Delplanque & E'Joung-Ju)'s long awaiting debut album 'Hwal'.

Hwal, meaning ‘bow’ in Korean, was entirely recorded live, then dissected for a whole year by Mathias Delplanque. The result of this long process represents the birth of a project meant to last; to enjoy both on stage and on disc!

Beyond the meeting of two instrumental practices separated by centuries, their creation stands out as an original form, drawing from ambient, dub, blues, African music and noise art. Hypnotic, warm, alternately dancing and meditative, their music is an imaginary folk, a unique and hybrid sonic adventure.

Head to our bandcamp page to listen to Eobu Noale, the first single to emerge until we release more for your earing pleasure.

In 2010, Parenthèses Records released Peter Knight & Dung Nguyen’s duo collaboration RESIDUAL seeing the pair developing unique approaches to combining Vietnamese and Western music elements in a contemporary setting.

At the start of 2014, Alexis Courtin from PR and Peter Knight discussed their shared desire to give the album a second life and thus asked a carefully chosen list of musicians from France and Australia to present their personal perspectives on Residual. The result is this amazing album that comes as a FREE download, blurring the boundaries between abstract ambient, repetitive experimental music and groove-based textures.

From LENA (aka Mathias Delplanque, France, Bruit Clair Records)’s proto dubby techno, Tilman Robinson’s abstract ambient, Joe Talia’s subtle electronica, Black Sifichi (France)’s unmistakable voice and post-musique concrète edit to Dan West ’s minimal groove, Residual was given the most refined homage.
