Makeness shares new track 'Who Am I To Follow Love'

Scottish producer Makeness has shared another new single from his just released debut album Loud Patterns. Crafting tracks which make a virtue of disparate influences, the sparkling ‘Who Am I To Follow Love’ sees Kyle Molleson team up with Babeheaven vocalist Nancy Andersen to create a reflective mood and showcase another side to his versatile songwriting talents. The track is accompanied by a new web page designed by Kyle, featuring a collection of images documenting the making of ‘Loud Patterns.’ 

Since announcing his debut album with the video for ‘Stepping Out Of Sync’, Makeness’ debut LP has found fans in BBC 6 Music’s Marc Riley and Radio 1 DJ’s Phil Taggart and Huw Stephens, in addition to this he has just supported acclaimed UK electronic artist George Fitzgerald on three tour dates. 

‘Loud Patterns’ is an album that’s 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. The album 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. 

Following the release of ‘Loud Patterns’, Makeness will tour with label kin Unknown Mortal Orchestra across North America and parts of Europe.
