Liverpool's electronic renaissance continues with this first cut from Acrobat, a.k.a. Sun Drums' Sam Twidale. Eschewing a straight 4/4 beat in favour of a sidestepping, episodic structure, ‘Sketch 3’ takes a fun, approachable course a la Todd Terje. A world away from the drenched, lordly psych of Sun Drums, the producer confidently throws out a classy dancefloor two-parter with minimal fuss and no small degree of style.

Live shows are entirely improvised offering a unique listening experience every time, with live visuals provided by the electronic promotion and design collective Deep Hedonia. A longer tape release on Deep Hedonia is expected later in the year. Catch his next live show at the second ARK event at Liverpool’s Drop The Dumbbells on 9th February.
