Robert Logan

Extasis EP

Slowfoot Records

Released: 1st June 2015 | 5 track leftfield/idm ep

Composer and producer Robert Logan's first album 'Cognessence' [2007] prompted an array of rave reviews and support. Still only 19 at the time he was described as ...;something of a prodigy...; a man that is already showing a maturity and a musical/textural understanding that many simply never find. [BBC experimental]. Mary Anne Hobbs called his music Absolutely outstanding...; ...;impossible to quantify , DJ Mag his album The essential last word in electronic soundscapes. A second album 'Inscape' and a clutch of EP's garnered yet more praise and cemented his reputation as an artist with immense talent and one worth keeping a very close eye on in the future.

'Extasis EP' is his much anticipated first release since 2009 and marks his return after a period that has seen him divert his attention to composing music for film and TV, including, most notably, one Oscar winning and one Oscar nominated documentary [with producer Ivor Guest] and another for which his soundtrack was nominated for an Emmy - as well as contributing music to various award winning dramas. He has also been busy applying his magic touch to recordings by the likes of Brigitte Fontaine, Skye [Morcheeba] and Grace Jones, collaborating with ambient pioneer Steve Roach and Raf & O, whilst rolling out the occasional mind-bending remix.

The music on 'Extasis EP' bears all the hallmarks of classic Logan - razor-sharp programming, a mastery of sonic architecture coupled with a strong melodic instinct. His production skills have up to now led him to being favorably compared to giants of electronic music such as Autechre, Amon Tobin, Massive Attack and Aphex Twin, amongst others. The influence of innovators such as these are still clearly in evidence but Logan has a wide range of references, a restless urge to push sonic boundaries and a desire to challenge himself and his audience - in the process creating a sound that is entirely his own. Tracks on the EP range from the skittering arpeggios of 'Iris', with its faint echoes of early Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk, to the grimey sci-fi hip-hop shuffle of 'Bear Beat', to the infectious bounce of 'MSIPY' - a moody homage to minimal techno.

The young and musically sensational Robert Logan is another name to add onto that list, creating sophisticated electronic music of advanced structures and sublime tonality, balancing his music between advanced grids of compositions, layering and transitions, running through an exploratory journey of the new that has timeless written all over it…. …The music on this record is stunning.[Sound Colour Vibration]

The EP will be followed by Logan's third full length album 'Flesh' which is due for release in the autumn.

"Logan’s finally back and he’s certainly just as striking."
