Gold Panda's new label is releasing an EP by the Norfolk synth specialist


Words by: Charlie Jones

Norfolk synth musician Luke Abbott is about to release a new EP, titled ‘Modern Driveway’, on the Notown label, set up by his pal Gold Panda.

Following 2010’s Holkham Drones, a heavyweight slab of analogue excellence on James Holden’s Border Community label, the title track from the new EP sees Abbott cleaning up the fuzz and dialling up the euphoria. Despite being an affirmed modular synth nerd, as “these amazing photos“ from his studio prove, there’s still a human touch to Abbott’s music – that bit of organic warmth that makes it so strangely moreish.

Luke Abbott’s ‘Modern Driveway’ is released on 25th May.
