Delac, aka James McAdam and Stephen Dooley, have garnered a reputation for tech-heavy live showcases — akin the vivid, immersive experiences seen in sets from Bicep, Overmono and Jamie xx.

The two recently performed a closing set for Spotify’s Pride Party and a featured mix on the BBC Introducing platform.

Speaking on the upcoming EP, Delac said: “For us, the ‘Beyond the Clouds’ EP represents a change in direction, moving away from the introspective sound of our earlier EPs to something more forward thinking and ultimately danceable.

“You’ve got to be able to dance! We both love the club scene in London and right now, we’re very much into House music. We’ve used this EP as a chance to explore the genre and add our own spin to it.

“The themes of the EP range from renewed love ‘All I Ever Need’, breaking out of despair into positivity ‘Xenon’, escapism from the mundane ‘Rufisque’ and an appreciation for human qualities in an age of AI ‘Beyond the Clouds’.”

They continued that “These ideas we’ve been exploring sum up our journey over the past 2 years since our previous EP and is essentially a post-pandemic outlook that has filled us with positive energy. We’re so proud of this EP but also feel we’re only just getting started- this is a stepping stone for what’s to come.”
