Subtly by Give Me Monaco taken from From The Coral To The Grey LP, out now.
‘Give Me Monaco’ is the moniker of Leigh Redding, an electronic producer whose work under previous aliases has been compared to artists like Max Cooper, Rival Consoles and Christian Loffler to name a few. Hailing from Oxford, UK, Redding is set to release his debut album under the new pseudonym ‘Give Me Monaco’.
‘From the Coral to the Grey’ centres around the concept of regeneration and exchange. The 8 tracks take different constructive experiences that all lead to a developed result, which by themselves focus on a discerning, singular aspect. By engaging with each element of this larger body of work, Redding has tried to concentrate on reduced points that when combined build a larger result. The album is a direct reflection and evaluation of personal experiences. ‘When you are given a task of such mammoth proportions in life, it can be easy to let that task become a behemoth to your world. This happens so often in the ordinary everyday it has become the norm. When you pick apart the pieces and study each aspect on an individual level, this is when things start to fall into place and become synonymous with routine.’ ‘From the Coral to the Grey’ is an audio account of fracturing these accepted practices.
Glitching beats coupled with warm pads and reverberated synths sit alongside organic percussion and ethnic instrumentation. Redding strives to design sounds from a variety of sources, whether analogue
in origin they take a new ‘regenerated’ form once fed through effects and digital manipulation, yet structured in a familiar setting.
