Manchester based instrumental artist Frameworks, part of Emancipator’s distinguished lmprint Loci Records, recently released his second full length album KINGS.
The video for their lead single “TITLES” have visual that are just as delicate as the refined organic instrumental. As the song unravels with atmospheric sounds and earthy vocals, we see three friends meeting for dance practice. Their versatile movement emphasizes form and symmetry of expression. Their presence further enhances the pulsating beats and rich warmth highlighted in the organic house grooves of ‘Titles’.
‘Kings’ follows Frameworks’ collaboration for a remix of other Loci music maker Tor’s own “Vaults”, as an addition to the artist’s Blue Book Remixed album. Appearing on tour with label mates Tor & Lapa, Frameworks has built up quite a bit of anticipation for the release of this ambient work of art.
Lush, symphonic compositions full of delicate strings, pulsing bass, and thrilling vocals litter the catalog of Matthew James Brewer, the Manchester-based performer and producer known as Frameworks. With a masterful LP, two EP’s previously released, Brewer has conquered massive festival stages in the US and toured the UK with his label chief Emancipator. Frameworks follows up Branches, a stunning, sorrowful, and uplifting set of tracks that emerged in 2015.With a rich warmth in his compositions that span downtempo, organic house, and jazzy hip-hop, each Frameworks track is a soapy bath to slip into after a long day on the job, or a deep embrace on a dance floor in the midst of a crowded forest.
Be sure to catch Frameworks at one of his last summer stops with other Loci artists this month and get the chance to experience his newest tunes live and in person.
