Jape, aka the Irish producer Richard Egan, has unveiled a music video for his single, “Eugh,” lifted from the instrumental electronic album 9K HI, VOL. 1, which drops on November 11, 2022, via Faction Records.

Described by the artist, who currently resides in Sweden, as “dance music for walking around graveyards” and “a tape you found on the floor of a rave,” fans of old technology are going to dig these beats

Commenting on the “Eugh” single, Jape states:

“‘EUGH’ sounds like the memory of a rave to me. I became obsessed with old samplers making this bunch of tunes, particularly the Casio FZ1. I think it sounds very emotional and nostalgic, and reminds us of a time when there were limitations with creativity which forced the creator to make decisions early on and stick to them. There is a lot of freedom in that.”
