OUT TODAY: PLEASURE STATE (LEE FOSS, MK & ANABEL ENGLUND) ‘
GHOST IN THE SYSTEM’ EP
Out Now on Beatport
15th December – iTunes
After debuting for the first time at this year’s We Are FSTVL, producers/DJs MK & Lee Foss and singer/songwriter Anabel Englund release their first official EP together as Pleasure State with ‘Ghost In The System’ on Jamie Jones’ and Lee Foss’ label Hot Creations.
Pleasure State is a project driven by the group’s unusual implosive chemistry along with a vision to create melodic and impassioned house music. Their style is dark and sensual with haunting vocals, pulsing beats and uncensored subject matters. Successful in their own right, MK, Lee and Anabel bring a wealth of talent, experience and creativity to this new and exciting group and Pleasure State acts as a natural extension of who they are as individuals.
After Lee Foss met the intriguing Californian talent Anabel Englund, he brought her into his existing collaboration with house heavyweight MK, literally igniting sparks between the group, whose union was formalised with the stand-out track ‘Electricity’ for Hot Creations. In spite of the fact that their hectic touring schedules pose difficult scheduling challenges, Pleasure State have somehow carved out the time all over the world to get together and create, and they have now delivered this exceptional EP.
The evocative ‘Ghost In The System’ is inhabited by a sinister presence created by Anabel’s chilling vocal which is accompanied by a bouncing bass and distorted rap and the result in a full on haunting of an atmospheric dance track. The EP features the politically charged and hip-hop influenced dance record ’Subject Matter’ and a 12 minute remix of ‘Electricity’ from Detroit techno legend and Grammy award winner, Carl Craig.
Influenced by the likes of Prince, Massive Attack, The Cure, Alicia Keys and Outkast with a strong undercurrent of undeniable bass and drama, Lee, Anabel and MK together form Pleasure State. You can check out the official music video now too here: http://bit.ly/1xzSWwz
