Pianist James Heather is set to release his debut EP, ‘Modulations: EP 1’, through Coldcut’s revived Ahead Of Our Time label on 9 Jun. The first in a series of EPs ranging in style and emotion, the release also precedes an album due out this summer.

The first track to be released from the EP is ‘Empire Sounds’, a piece that unfolds beautifully. Its melody initially pinned in place by a rigid left hand rhythm, it is soon allowed to flow with increasing freedom.

As new melodies begin to emerge, Heather undertakes an impressive exploration in the short composition, through changes in pace and deft rhythmical interplay.
