Enigmatic UK producer Love Remain today returns with new single and video ‘Flourish’ on his new home of Black Butter Records. Alongside the release, Love Remain has announced a headline live show at Corsica Studios next month on November 29. Starting life as a collection of field recordings taken using his phone at the Isabella Plantation in Richmond Park, ‘Flourish’ is a textural and dreamlike production that connects the warmth of nature with the wistful reverie of the very best strains of electronic music. Wide-ranging, wandering and progressive, it’s an effortless listen and a clear indicator of Love Remain’s prowess as a technical producer.
Speaking on the track, Love Remain explains: “I was experiencing some moments throughout spring this year that really made a lot of sense, I was getting lots of signs from multiple situations that kind of felt like little reinforcements. Subtle signs of hope, so when writing flourish I tried to capture that enriched feeling of “everything’s going to be ok and let’s not fucking worry to much!”
Emerging on the scene last year with his debut body of work Still In Awe, Love Remain has spent the last 12 months stamping his ground as one of the most singular new talents in British electronic music. His music revels in the physicality of sound, curated as an ode to his home of South London and an appreciation of his surroundings. Love Remain’s intimate use of voice notes from friends and field recordings stands as testament to the power of music in facilitating catharsis, healing and celebrating the realities of friendship, love and life.
The project has been greeted with affection and high praise from the electronic music community, receiving support from Radio 1’s Sarah Story, Sian Elari, Danny Howard, Pete Tong and Lauren Laverne. Moments from 2022 were celebrated with regular London Introducing spins from Jess Iszatt and mixes for both BBC Introducing London and Clash Magazine and he has been supported by the likes of RA, Mixmag, Notion + more. Already building recognition as a live artist, Love Remain sold out his debut headline show at the Bermondsey Social Club back in April and this summer he played at Field Day and supported Four Tet at his Finsbury Park takeover. Next month, he will be performing at The Warehouse Project alongside the likes of Peggy Gou, Ben UFO and Sherelle.
