New Le Makeup: “Couples”

Le Makeup contributed a new song to a compilation put together by the Berlin label Oxyorange. The whole comp is worth checking out, but the Osaka producer’s track for it offers a nice break from mostly thumpier material. “Couples” propels forward on guitar melodies, offering a nice pace but without ever really getting as chilly as the other songs across the release. Yet as the beat becomes more prominent and the main melody mutates, it also becomes clear that this is Le Makeup adjusting his older sound — one which would have fit nicely on this comp too — to the one he has embraced over the last year. Listen above, or get the comp here.
