Inga Copeland — she of Hype Williams, she of the Inga Copeland half of Dean Blunt and Inga Copeland — is striking out on her own for a debut LP called Don’t Look Back, That’s Not Where You’re Going, due to land sometime this year. (Dean Blunt’s The Redeemer will be out May 1.) Thirty-second previews on this thang have been appearing on the internet for the past few months, but sometimes 30 seconds just isn’t enough, ya know? Sometimes you want, like, at least eight minutes of music. Sometimes you just want, like, a full-on three-track teaser 12-inch. And if anything, Inga and friends are known for giving the people what they want.
Hence, Hype Williams’ World Music imprint, the benevolent candy-dispensing psychedelic Easter Bunny of weirdo music labels (you know what I mean, don’t act like you don’t know), is making three very special tracks available to you, the listener, on March 4. Produced by fellow Hyperdub associates Martyn and DVA, this EP of wonders includes tracks “So Far So Clean,” “Speak,” and “A&E,” and is available for pre-order from Boomkat. (The magical part is that you get a free digital download dropped into your account on release day. Ooooh modern technology. Top hats. Doves. MAGIC.) Like a unicorn, this shit is gonna be rare, limited edition, act now, etc.
