About this item

Critically acclaimed Dutch act Weval (AKA Harm Coolen and Merijn Scholte Albers) arrive on Ninja Tune’s Technicolour imprint with their new EP, “Changed For The Better”. The duo hail from Amsterdam, where they have been cultivating a unique sound that balances club-ready electronic funk, emotive synth arrangements and distorted drums with bold, beautifully composed melodies and songwriting. The duo recently embarked on a mission to rediscover themselves and what truly drives them, in a process of liberation from selfimposed constraints. Their creative process was reinvigorated with an uninhibited approach and “Changed For The Better” represents Weval unfiltered, accepting themselves for who they truly are. It’s sincere and heartfelt and unashamedly positive. For fans of Bonobo, Four Tet, Floating Points, Caribou, Kelly Lee Owens, DJ Seinfeld, Jayda G, Peggy Gou.


Matt says: Rock solid dance grooves with poppy flurries? Why not. Sure to appeal to fans of Caribou and Bonobo; some of the sound design is melon-twistingly good, whilst the hooks and melodies keep it light enough for most to digest. Big crossover potential on this one folks.
