Koreless is a humble lad. At only 19 this young DJ has started to make a name for himself by sticking true to his intentions with music production by keeping it original. “To me, music is art, more of a personal thing, copying what everyone else is doing is just pointless”. His dark, muffled, refined drum beats coupled with the soothing and gaze like synths with the occasional addition of yearning wholesome female lyrics come together in such a fine way. A welcome change from the current trend of dark and gritty R&B which seems to be everywhere. Already he has received a respectful nod and play from Gilles Peterson at Radio 1 and put in the same league as other heavy hitters after he commented “Koreless, James Blake, Jamie Woon and Ramadaman – remember where you heard them first”.

Originally from North Wales, he’s studying Naval Architecture in Glasgow. I’m sure the future will hold many interesting opportunities for this young kid and if his boats don’t float, at least his beats will

    Not as I can see. Follow him on twitter @Koreless or soundloud.com/koreless. I’ve heard there’s a debut release out next month too. Looking forward to that
