Kompakt will release Coracle on 26th September

In 2010 Sam Willis of London DJ duo Allez-Allez came together with Alessio Natalizia of bedroom pop project Banjo Or Freakout to release the first, self-titled WALLS album. Released on Kompakt, the über-slick German label best known for records by The Field, Gui Boratto and it’s founder Wolfgang Voigt, WALLS was a short, sweet burst of downtempo electronica with an anthemic lead-off single that ended up on numerous end-of-year best-of lists. The duo will release their excellent follow-up, Coracle, at the end of September. I spoke to Sam about the new album, the collaborative process and their forthcoming tour with Battles, who hand-picked them as support on a trek around the US and Canada:

Hi Sam. You were (and still are) involved in different, separate projects before you came together to form WALLS. Tell me a little bit about how you guys met and how WALLS came about.

The way we met was that I was asked to do a remix of Alessio’s Banjo Or Freakout project (under the Allez-Allez moniker) by Richard Onslow who runs the Half Machine label – he really liked the mix and suggested that we work together, just for fun. We clicked really quickly and very soon had a bunch of tracks that became the basis for our début album. Also, we now live round the corner from each other so we pretty much meet up every day for a coffee, even when we’re not making music! (Read More)
