'Loud Patterns' is the debut album from Makeness, one Kyle Molleson, from Scotland. Crafting tracks which make a virtue of disparate influences, Kyle manages to pull off something difficult: songs which have been tirelessly worked on, although sound loose-limbed and to-the-point.
'Loud Patterns' is noticeably indebted to house and techno; there are 4/4 rhythms, and a no-nonsense directness that harks back to the Detroit pioneers. Channeling avant-garde experimentalism and an outsider’s interest in pop, Kyle embraces the distance between those two poles.
'Cosmic Slop', an underground institution in Leeds, was another touchstone. As Kyle recalls, “That place was definitely an awakening in terms of dance music.” It boasts a hand-built, peerless soundsystem, a near-pitch black dancefloor and a music policy that ranges from Dilla instrumentals to Detroit house.
Loud Patterns arrives after a series of releases that have established his particular, in-between approach to dance-minded music. He put out two EPs on Manchester-based imprint Handsome Dad, a one-off single with Adult Jazz and self-released 'Temple Works' EP; Whities also released a limited-edition white label of a 'Minor Science' dub of one of his tracks.
The lead single on the album is 'Stepping Out Of Sync.' “‘Stepping Out Of Sync’ for me is about losing a little bit of a grip on reality,” says Kyle. “There’s a big nod to the world of pop music in the track."
