A firm underground favourite, Paleman has spent the four years since breaking on to the scene rising rapidly to the top, having had multiple releases on the esteemed Swamp81 label, and collaborating with the likes of Zed Bias and the superb jazz outfit Polar Bear. His productions are dark and gritty, in the way that 81 affiliated artists do so well.
Busting in to the limelight back in 2012, his excellent All Good EP immediately cemented his name as a producer to watch. Since then he’s maintained his stature with a string of top quality productions, each maintaining something of a signature style, whilst being fairly disparate in sound. 2014’s ‘Beezledub’ was a stand-out for the young producer, seeming to enrapture the majority of selectors (and their crowds) for that summer; from uni pre-drinks, to local clubs, to the biggest festivals in the world. Since then his sound has matured and developed even further, as highlighted in his most recent release.
A penchant for percussion, and currently studying for a degree in Jazz drums, his productions tick along with a strange, but oddly familiar irregularity. Paradoxically rhythmic and arrhythmic, throwing the typical 4/4 beat out the window. We’re thrilled to bring you today’s Tracks Of The Day from the one and only Paleman. Taking us on a road less travelled, under the theme of “moods that sweep me away”, indulge in four tracks that are outside the normal sound of the Swamp 81 selector. They speak to his wider tastes, and it’s this eclecticism that helps to inform his inimitable productions.
