20th November 2020 / LP or CD / Border Community
“Abbott’s aptitude for constructing grand, cinematic soundscapes means parts of the record – ‘Luna’ and ‘Earthship’ in particular – feel like a sci-fi score, but the emotion at the crux of the project brings it back down to earth.”

Couldn't be more excited to welcome the esteemed Mr. Luke Abbott to the Dinked Family, every new release from him is a cause for celebration at Drift HQ.

'Translate' is the first solo artist album in six years from Norfolk synthesizer specialist 'Luke Abbott': a strikingly direct and assured return to the solo music-making game following a productive diversion into live improvisation with his experimental jazz trio Szun Waves.

+ Dinked Edition Number 66
+ Audiophile-friendly double crystal-clear vinyl.
+ Limited to just 300 copies pressed.
+ 15cm die-cut vinyl sticker insert.
+ Individually numbered. 
+ Includes download code.

At times dark and ominous, others bright and welcoming, these eleven electronic vignettes form a dramatic and undeniably cinematic body of work which functions as a fitting widescreen soundtrack to our new now.

The lumbering rhythms, strident synths and distinctive touchstones of 'Translate' represent a musical reconciliation with the directness of the wave-making rolling synth-kraut of Abbott’s forthright debut 'Holkham Drones'.

Newly-reinvigorated and with a new sense of musical purpose, this is Luke Abbott’s sound fully realised and never so sure of itself.
