'Translate' is the first solo artist album in six years
from Norfolk synthesizer specialist Luke Abbott: a
strikingly direct and assured return to the solo
music-making game following a productive diversion
into live improvisation with his experimental jazz trio
Szun Waves.

At times dark and ominous, others bright and
welcoming, these eleven electronic vignettes form a
dramatic and undeniably cinematic body of work which
functions as a fitting widescreen soundtrack to our
new now.

The lumbering rhythms, strident synths and distinctive
touchstones of 'Translate' represent a musical
reconciliation with the directness of the wave-making
rolling synth-kraut of Abbott’s forthright debut
'Holkham Drones'.

Newly-reinvigorated and with a new sense of musical
purpose, this is Luke Abbott’s sound fully realised and
never so sure of itself.
