Product Description

140-gram LP version. Having partnered with Bill Kouligas in 2015 to relaunch his Lost Codes imprint as Codes, Visionist takes a defining step forward with the release of his debut album, Safe. The South London artist born Louis Carnell broke during a period of experimentation in UK music when, with the disintegration of the dubstep scene, emerging producers began looking to juke and Chicago house for inspiration. A pair of EPs on Lit City Trax (and a collaboration with Fatima Al Qadiri) in 2013 and '14 introduced Visionist's minimalist take on fractured R&B and liquid grime, establishing him as a leading voice in new wave UK soundsystem culture. On Safe, Visionist sculpts and extends that signature into new terrain and makes his most personal statement yet. Distilling his influences down to a sparse palette of manipulated folk, pop, and R&B a cappellas; icy synths; and metallic drum samples, he plays off ever-present anxiety and his own battle not to let it overwhelm him.

"Comfort, protection, salvation -- this is what we search for," he says. "We are taught that a life of no worries is better for us, and therefore we try to create one that is 'Safe.'" But while safe as a musical concept implies conformity, Safe as an artistic statement is anything but. At a moment when the UK scene, once known for innovation, has settled into rehashing old tropes, Visionist continues to propel his sound into more experimental territory. The album traces the arc of an anxiety attack, from its onset through to recovery. Following the stately discord of brief opener "You Stayed," the grimy, ballistic assault of "Victim" sends its targets diving into mirrored corners. "I've Said" is a brutal, almost militant advance, its sound cutting in and out as though transmitted via shortwave radio. "Too Careful to Care" trades in skittering paranoia, with the soporific "Sleep Luxury" closing out affairs.
