ATHLETE WHIPPET YOUR LOVE IS LIFTING ME REIMAGINED
Athlete Whippet give a diverse selection of new wave talent free rein on their recently released Your Love Is Lifting Me EP.
From the harmonic sensibilities of Istanbul-based Wunderkind Aleksandir to the sci-fi-inspired UK breaks of Nick Hoppner-protégé Cameo Blush. The result of no boundaries are six beautifully crafted reimaginations that each hold their own, all the while keeping the original integrity of the EP – to lift and connect with emotion.
ATHLETE WHIPPET – “For us, music has always drawn its power from community, compassion and collaboration and these are the main motivations for our label Squareglass which often acts as a platform to debut new talent from our South London base. Getting together with people to create has obviously been more difficult over the past few months but even when making music alone we work from the ground that our inspirators have left for us. In line with that, we wanted to give the artists that have generously contributed to this collection – friends and inspirators in their own rights – a free hand, and we love what happened here. All of these reimaginations are seen through the lense of each artist’s own emotions and experiences.”
