French born DJ, producer, remixer and label owner Uppermost could well be one of the most diverse and consistent producers that we’ve come across. Alongside a run of albums that goes back a decade, the Parisian has remixed some of the biggest names in music, including Daft Punk, deadmau5, Rihanna and Adele. The next record to come from his studio is one that compiles the majority of his singles and EPs from the 2020 year, including two previously unreleased exclusives. The album
reaches across a wide palette of genres, with euphoric electronica, rhythmic funk, chilling UK garage and groovy deep house on display. Due to its eclectic nature, you might not enjoy the record in its entirety, but we would definitely assume you’re lying if you said you aren’t feeling at least a couple of the tracks on this one. It comes via Uppermost’s own Uppmind Records imprint, where he has released almost all of his music to date, alongside works from Satin Jackets, Digitalism, Fuji and OBu, among others.
Where to start:
Feel Alive: Awe-inspiring album opener
Fireflies: Deep, richly produced house groover
Endure: Stripped back and heavily filtered
