Esofact is the combination of Urple Eeple (Peter Farr) and Isturite’s (Kevin Welch) creative labours. Their new track ‘Blocks‘ is the first from an upcoming self-titled EP, which looks set to rustle the feathers of all the genre-purists out there.
Based in California and Los Angeles respectively, Farr and Welch have known each other since their teens, and traversed the landscapes of the early rave culture together. Naturally, they decided to make music together and in 2014 Esofact was born.
‘Blocks‘ is a genre-defying mosaic of sounds and styles – free from the shackles of labels. Esofact expains: “Blocks is a piece we wrote about grappling with modern society’s obsession with putting you into a box. The music industry has this obsession with labelling you. “Oh, you make bass music.” “Oh, this sounds like future bass.” “Oh, this is beats.” We wrote blocks to break genre boundaries as our way of breaking out of the predefined labels the music industry seems obsessed with sticking onto you. Sometimes music is just music, and you need to sit back and enjoy it. Turn off the part of your brain that wants to label what it is, and simply enjoy it.”
