Kiss Me Again EP
Welt Discos, the label run by Joe Delon and distributed by Lisbon’s Carpet & Snares, is back with its second release, this time from the Dublin-based producer Lerosa. Boasting spectacular Drexciyan artwork by Costa Brava, the record is due for release in late April, and is available for pre-order on the label’s Bandcamp.
Lerosa is a musician through and through, producing across genres and always with his own distinctive studio sound shining through. Having gained a dedicated following ever since his 2004 debut on Dublin’s legendary D1 Recordings, he and Joe met each other when he played for the party Joe & friends organised at the Russian Bar in London in 2010. That party was called ‘Kiss Me Again’, hence the name for this EP.
All four tracks on the record were composed during summer 2020, the result of daily cat-assisted studio time at his home in Dublin. Lerosa has been posting clips of his studio sessions on his instagram, and it was from browsing those clips that Joe suggested a line-up for the EP. Several of Lerosa’s musical influences – I.M.S., Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, James Stinson – can be heard across these four diverse tracks, as he jumps nimbly from italo to dub to house to electro.
Happily, for those who missed out last time, the release arrives at the same time as a repress of And.rea’s Coco Bongo Club EP.
