Rising electronic producer Unpropped released his new single, ‘Nousle’, on the 28th of April. The brazen single was premiered by CLASH Magazine and is taken from his first full-length project, his forthcoming debut EP titled Acausality, which will be available for electronic music fans to enjoy on the 30th of June. Notably, the 5-track project was mastered by Stefan Betke, the founder of Scape Mastering, who has engineered acts like Apparat, Richie Hawtin, and Kangding Ray to name a handful.
The biggest influence on his development as a musician has been his two years of study at Longevity Music School in Strasbourg, France, where he learnt how to process his vast creativity and open mind into unsuspected patterns and mystical arrangements that will stand the test of time. Focused on creating his debut EP, the cinematic music maker is also preparing a live performance, where he will present his dynamic ethos to groups of people, using minimal machinery, propelling intuitive sounds, and manoeuvring way beyond the norm with the aim of creating a sense of community that, before the experience, seemed inconceivable.
Innovative is a term thrown around in modern-day music, but one that rings loud as the Unpropped concept unravels. Born Germán Sánchez, Unpropped is able to paint pictures for listeners, using their minds as canvas, each curious sound blending in a new colour. After spending considerable time improving his cultural palette in Brazil, India, and Morocco, this native Spaniard settled in Germany where he currently resides. Drawing inspiration from artists like Floating Points, Amon Tobin, and Alva Noto to name a few, he creates music that is unique to him. If one had to draw a comparison, it might be likened to early Plastikman as well as Aphex Twin, Autechre, and Lorn.
A swell of pulsating experimentation, Unpropped’s ‘Nousle’ cuts through the noise. Bold kicks drive on, unstoppable in their ambition to strike with force, building to a hypnotic pace while multiplying as they go.
Unpropped describes the record: “My goal with this track was to score a balance between the warmth of a textured, gentle bassline and the coldness of a rather straightforward beat, always driven by the mysterious sample that runs through the whole song. ‘Nousle’ drives you through different stages and atmospheres in an organic way without losing its essence, which I appreciate most.”
