Squareglass label founders Athlete Whippet continue to showcase their genre-bending ability on ‘Your Love Is Lifting Me’. Renowned for cleverly fusing different musical influences into timeless contemporary jams, this five track EP sees the duo explore signature sounds furtherfield of the dancefloor.
Athlete Whippet’s music bridges musical palettes across the board. The duo arrived in 2016, immediately resonating with acclaimed media and radio selectors alike. Tom Ravenscroft has continued to support on the BBC Radio airwaves, and did so from the get go. The most recent spins come from Jamz Supernova and Annie Mac on their 2019 collaboration with Metronomy’s Olugbenga.
2020’s Your Love Is Lifting Me is an ode to solidarity and compassion through the lens of electronic music and its culture. Uplifting, optimistic, emotional, expressive, and sensual. This EP aims to connect.
Athlete Whippet - These are strange times we’ve found ourselves in. Lots of people around us are losing their jobs and feeling lonely. One thing that we’ve really felt developing is a greater sense of solidarity and compassion. It’s a beautiful thing to witness in such a difficult time. That high vibration that rises out of the low is a feeling that for us carries through this EP. Both lyrically and musically.
