ARA KOUFAX - ARA KOUFAX (EP)
by Ara Koufax
Ara Koufax’s music was born in the long wait for a cool change - a tribute to the time of year when you can leave home without a jacket and walk on warm, springy concrete all night.
Released by Cut Copy’s Cutters Records and championed by the likes of Tim Sweeney, Ara Koufax’s 'Brenda' seemed perfectly suited to welcome the sunrise.
On 'Market', the Melbourne-based duo (who also work together as Naysayer & Gilsun) step closer toward the peak of the evening; each pouring their individual loves into a house music mould.
Through the unhinged, improvisational sax work of Sam Mullaly (City Calm Down), Market unravels as a loving nod to Lil Louis and Jungle Wonz at their most anthemic. Coloured by dusty, overdriven chords and oaky percussion reminiscent of David Axelrod, the track’s edges are made to be reached for and felt in the dark.
In celebration of their EP release through Downtime, Ara Koufax will present their live show at Melbourne's Hugs & Kisses on Friday May 8th with special guests LA Pocock and Infinity Blade.
The weather is perfect. Everyone is here and we’re all so happy to see you.
