Title: Cenotaph
Product Type: VINYL LP

Limited 180gm heavyweight colored vinyl LP pressing. 2015 debut album by U/V Light who sound more than a bit like Cloudland Canyon at times. This is because it is the first solo effort from Kip Uhlhorn of CC. Kip played, sang on, engineered, mixed, and collaborated with Gabby Weiss on this recording. Eschewing standard German comparisons that CC usually receives, U/V Light often sounds like either early electro or dance-pop but without the typical blueprint so commonly replicated these days. Kip's rockist tendencies make this recording more interesting and fresher than those usual reference points. However, after Gabby's vocals kick in, some of the band's influences can be discerned such as Desire, or Uffie fuzed with Sylvester, Bobby O, Jonzun Crew, Space "Magic Fly", etc. One could also draw some comparisons to Primal Scream's Screamadelica, Seefeel, or Craig Leon at times. Despite hints at motorik tempos and/or beats., U/V Light is more of a pop affair. It is also not a simple continuation of Cloudland Canyon. Dance-pop seems the clearest reference point here, but Cenotaph does not have a standard dance beat feel. Recorded quickly, the record has a consistent sonic approach that makes individual tracks sound like a suite of songs. Mastered by Martin Bowes at the Cage Studios, UK.
