Continuing our strong tradition of supporting Australian talent, Open Records is proud to present Victor Y and Lou Millar’s Blueprint, with remixes by Doppel and Illusions Tenfold.
Victor Y is Paul Suares, a talented Sydney producer who now resides in Berlin. Also the brains behind boundary-pushing techno outfit Bass To Pain Converter, Victor Y is an outlet for a different side of Suares’ productions, from delicate chillwave right through to driving tech-house and techno.
With collaboration at the heart of the project, Blueprint sees Victor Y team up with supremely talented vocalist and songwriter Lou Millar for a deep and intoxicating journey into groove. Underpinned by an undulating bassline, relentless tribal percussion and a heavily effected flute loop, Millar’s stunning, all-original spoken word lyrics lift Blueprint to something truly unique and special.
Canberra’s Doppel returns to Open again with the first stunning rework, lifting the flute, vocals and percussive elements from the original to create one of his best works yet. Packed full of the intricate, swung rhythms, twisted effects and the originality that has made his previous releases on Open both critical and commercial successes, this slick remix is a worthy successor to his smash hit Melt.
Finally, closing the release out we’re proud to present the debut from Queensland artist Illusions Tenfold, the new solo project from Uzziah Woods from Ord Rede. Reconstructing Blueprint from the ground up into an experimental, analogue monster, Illusions Tenfold proves he is another name to watch from the hotbed of talent that is the tropical city of Cairns.
