Plaid Scintilli on 2LP + Download Card

Born out of the early hip hop scene and complemented by acid house and Detroit techno, Plaid has written and performed with Björk, and has released four albums on the Warp label. Their music involves emotive riffs that sit proudly over complex syncopated rhythms, the songs have melodic narratives and only rarely is the human voice used to spell these out. Synthetic layers are heaped on, producing euphoric highs at times and uncomfortable dark spaces at others.

In the years since their last release, Plaid's time has been spent composing for film and stage as well as touring new and classic works, including performances at Warp Records’ 20th Anniversary, which lead to developing ideas for their latest album project, Scintilli. Latin in origin, the word scintilli can be translated as, ‘I am many sparks’. A self-affirming mantra they claim to chant for two hours every morning, before starting work in their newly built studio shed in North London. 

Every beat of the work has been carefully crafted: they’ve calculated that each beat has taken approximately one day to construct – from the announcement of the laying down of the first foundation beat in early 2009, to the rendering of the final decay earlier this year. ‘This labour intensive process will guarantee long lasting pieces of music that can withstand the restless tensions placed upon them by modern playback devices’, they insist.
