Soundway Records presents the album Teal by Julien Dyne: a synth-heavy sonic palette of future-soul and percussive afro-house from the New Zealand multi-instrumentalist.
On Teal, Dyne shifts towards a more up-tempo, afro-inspired sound melding instrumental flair with astute production. The album features fellow New Zealanders Lord Echo and Mara TK, long term band-mate Ladi6, Fat Freddy’s Drop trumpeter Toby Laing, plus Australian vocalist Tim Guy and jazz luminaries Jonathan Crayford and John Bell.
This is a body of work for the listener and the dancer alike with a mood as fitting for headphones as it is for the floor, with the double vinyl album cut loud at 45 RPM.
