The man of the hour, Louis aka Intriguant brings us the 15th entry to our mix series; a solid hour of power aimed straight at the dancefloor! Coming in hot and just in time to celebrate the arrival of his third album, Spirits, which we couldn't be more honoured to release on TAV Records.
AV003LP: Intriguant - Spirits
Released in late November, the LPs have only just arrived over the weekend due to pressing plant delays. (Thank you 2020.) We're super grateful for the amount of care and dedication taken by everyone involved throughout the process, from Beau Thomas of Ten Eight Seven (Mastering), to Phantom Limb (UK Distro), to Dublin Vinyl (Pressing Plant.) It's been so satisfying to finally listen to this on vinyl. Swing by the shop for a listen, and grab your copy here.

We've been a fan from the early days, but Louis's musical output isn't the only thing we love about the guy. He's quickly becoming quite the legend this scene needs, filling out a space in the beatmaker / electronic musician gig arena with his Uploading series, giving aspiring electronic musicians in Singapore a much needed platform for performance and experimentation. The series had to be put on hold like all live events this year, but that didn't stop Louis from putting on a stellar 3-part version of the series online dubbed Uploading Now, in collaboration with Singapore Community Radio, BCUBE and the National Arts Council. We were lucky enough to speak with Mixmag Asia about this, you can check out the article here.

If you've been to parties like Good Times, you know that Louis knows how to turn it up. He's cut his teeth on the decks there, building up the reputation we all recognize today. Fast forward numerous gigs and 3 albums later, his love for good dance music still oozes, and certainly comes forward in his contribution to our mix series. It's a well thought out dancefloor journey that showcases his identity right now as a well versed selector, floating between genres and emotions, keeping the beats driving, mixing smooth, and ending it nice and classy. Lock in for some groove therapy, no wind instruments required!
