Self described as “Kylie on acid”, Cornish electronic Producer Hockeysmith has shared her new track ‘Never Knowning’ taken from compilation album EEL.COMP1. Released via new label EEL – which was set up by Annie Hockeysmith (Hockeysmith) & Lukasz Kucharski (omoo) – the collection is designed to celebrate artists connected to the new Cornish underground scene, and is set for release on 18th April.
Following on from the release of her EP Tears At My Age earlier this year via Ex-Local, Hockeysmith is now turning her attention firmly to the talent in her hometown. EEL intends to broaden the scope of listeners to the Falmouth electronic music scene through their independent label that lays homageto the history of Cornwall’s rave scene, and the likes of Aphex Twin, John Peel and Luke Vibert.
EEL recordings takes its name firstly from Earth, from Cornwall. The second ‘E’ stands for eel, for the eely, slimy, grimy electronic music. The ‘L’ is for Loop, the repetitive cylinder of sounds and for the loopy musicians soon to be on the label. It’s an exciting new venture, and one we’re sure will be prosperous for Hockeysmith and her talented friends.
