Never letting sights drift from forging new terrains and accepting that the unknown is the most natural: SKY H1 shares the 2nd single from her long-awaited debut album.

In a world of frenetic exhortations, SKY H1 has taken her own route through the pandemonium, developing her distinct atmosphere of emotive, rave-crushed songs. The widespread success of her first EPs and appearances captured the blurring lines between her foundational experiences in drum and bass, grime, dubstep, and techno, all tilted towards schematic bursts of pop.

More recently, composing for film and video in both cinema and art environments has become a parallel arc of her practice. The 2nd installment of her first full-length release is called »Labyrinth« and was originally composed for a movie score: »I decided last minute to add this to the album because the atmosphere of the track really completes it. It was recorded in one take and  reflects my mood at that specific time.« It’s also the opening track of »Azure« and slowly envelops, setting the tone of the album’s tender vitality.

Azure will be released on AD 93, the London-based label founded by Nic Tasker, which has also published records by Lanark Artefax, Avalon Emerson or James K, on December 3.
