Taking his name from a food colouring, Luke Williams' Quinoline Yellow output has been tantalisingly drawn out. Renowned in the electronic world for 5 years now, in that time he has rationed devotees to merely one EP, one 3" cd, split singles with Massimo and Duplo Remote and, bizarrely, a car air freshener. So it's timely for version that he finally releases his debut album Dol-Goy Assist 3 months prior to our festival.
A prime mover for Manchester's Skam imprint, his sound fits well with their alien sonic aesthetic. The digital whoosh and clank of Williams' sci-fi bit hop binds industrial electro and classical IDM melodies within the mighty Skam mainframe. Acid squelches and squashed propellants contrast with arresting robot lullabies. Optimum bass, super-crunched beats and dizzyingly mangled machine work combine with top level production skills to ensure that, though Williams certainly isn't the first and only artist to plough this musical furrow, he's one of a very small elite to do it with such finesse.
