About this item
SKY H1 presents her long-awaited debut album, "Azure", on AD 93. The widespread success of her first EPs and appearances captured the blurring lines between her foundational experiences in drum & bass, grime, dubstep and techno, all tilted towards schematic bursts of pop. "Azure" builds on these foundations and explores a delicate medley of experiences, forms, and functions, culminating in an imaginative and evocative debut album.
The title, "Azure", was chosen to evoke memories of her mother, to whom the record is dedicated. The song titles reference the Access Virus synthesiser, an instrument series that made a deep and lasting impression on dance and electronic music in the early years of the new millennium. The sound is grandiose, luminous and expansive. Meeting somewhere between Tri-Angle records, the producers Rustie & SOPHIE and the post-everything landscapes traversed by her contemporaries - the music finds a natural home in the club, but also confidently strides into other environments such as film, cinema and art installations.
