    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Getting impatient before our full release in 2018 we’ve upped the order of test presses to create a limited run of 30 screen-printed advanced copies of the Portable presents RANGEr EP.

    The visuals are created by Cape Town based print media artist Bonolo Kavula, who shares a common heritage with RANGEr and a similar approach to present South African culture in a fresh and exciting way.

    The detail on the original transfers intricately to each printed sleeve. Check out a video of them being made, along with a clip of one of the EP’s tracks.

    These sleeves won’t be featuring in the full release so buying on Bandcamp before Christmas will be your only chance.

about

Alan Abrahams aka Portable aka Bodycode is an artist very much defined by his past and his journey from South Africa to Paris via Berlin and Lisbon has seen him develop into a critically acclaimed producer, singer and video artist working with some of the biggest players in electronic music.

Part of his constant drive to evolve and challenge himself, this autumn Abrahams launches new project RANGEr, teaming up with London label Waella’s Choice for the debut release. The five tracks on Portable Presents RANGEr are a delicate mélange of jazz , soul and electronic and one of Abraham’s most explicit nods to his South African roots.

On the A-side, the EP makes a steady start with ‘Bazokonwaba’ accompanied by a lullaby from South African a capella group Korus, hailing from the small township of Mbekweni in the Western Cape. They also feature heavily on the EP’s most exuberant moment in ‘Nomaliso’ – already a favourite in Esa’s recent Boiler Room – and the more languid B-side opener ‘Indaba’ with a choir of cowbells all harmonizing in unison. ‘Reset’ and ‘Vessel’ provide a self-reflective conclusion to the EP, holding their own as instrumentals with Cameroonian bass player Stan on bass and Parisian saxophonist Chisneg lending a hand on the latter
