In 2015, UK electro artist Ambassadeurs (aka Mark Dobson) kept very busy with a slew of EPs and the release of his debut album Patterns on his own Lost Tribe Records imprint. Now back in the studio recording his second album, he is dropping the Halos EP in the interim to keep fans of his sound happy. The EP was written during an escape in the autumn from the city to the countryside.
The change of scenery from concrete to wilderness is reflected in the more organic sounds on this 4 tracker, which was written with the bare minimum of equipment to hand, even sampling some old cassettes that were left behind in the cottage where he was staying. The EP explores a more 4/4 sound than his debut album while still retaining the signature aesthetic of Ambassadeurs productions.
