Producer Inkke (aka Russell Patterson) has been carving out a respectable name for himself on the Glasgow scene, running his FWDK club night at Glasgow School of Art and providing local DJs with a steady stream of music.
Further afield his own sets have been aired on everything from Norway’s NRK to Prague station Radio Wave.
Previous offerings feature a sparse electronic sound which strays into jazz with elements of early 90s rave. While his most recent EP, Secret Palace, continues the minimalistic tendency, it has a playful, sound-design component. It is released on LuckyMe Records, home to Scots artists Rustie and S-Type. Inkke is due to appear on the bill of the label’s Edinburgh Festival extravaganza, which takes place at Sneaky Pete’s on Friday. Listen at: https://soundcloud.com/inkke.
Olaf Furniss and Derick Mackinnon run Born To Be Wide, which has an event at Edinburgh International Book Festival’s Spiegeltent on 23 August featuring veteran Smash Hits/NME journalist Sylvia Patterson and Honeyblood’s Stina Tweeddale. www.borntobewide.co.uk
