School Of Velocity

Chemikal Underground, released 1st June 2015

> ON THE LONGLIST

London-born Julian Corrie, aka Miaoux Miaoux, is a Glasgow-based producer, remixer and all-round electro-pop polymath who’s been turning heads since his high-gloss, hook-laden debut ‘Light of the North’ bagged a SAY longlist placing in 2013.  Three years later and in the wake of acclaimed remixes for CHVRCHES, Belle & Sebastian and production duties for Malcolm Middleton, ‘School of Velocity’ offers up another intoxicating brew of hooks, beats and irresistible melodies.

‘School of Velocity’ finds multi-instrumentalist Miaoux Miaoux at the peak of his enviable powers, corralling influences from eighties pop, nineties trance and the subtle, assured melodicism of Caribou to forge a sound with few parallels.  A beguiling series of silken soundscapes that simultaneously conjures a meta-nostalgic memory of classic pop workouts – think early Prince, Scritti Politti, Jam & Lewis – and a future where analogue synths and four-to-the-floor have earned their rightful, overdue places alongside the electric guitar as elemental building blocks of pop culture.

Euphoria, ecstasy, rapture – call it what you want…better still: submit.

“Miaoux Miaoux’s ability to tease out textured complications from familiar songwriting origins renders School of Velocity a possible classic-in-the-making. Compact, visionary and luxurious.”  THE SKINNY (5/5)
