Maps launches video for new 'A.M.A.' singlePosted on 11/07/13
Here's a pearl that would never hit the dark electro scene if we didn't report about it. So, let's introduce you to the workd of Maps, the recording name used by Northampton-based musician James Chapman. While the new "Vicissitude" album is out now, Maps now releases a new single and video. "A.M.A." is the opening track of the new album and the video for the track was shot in Spain and directed by Alan Masferrer. Expect fluent electronics with warm male vocals.
"A.M.A." is out now on limited edition Rough Trade 12" and download, with a remix from the Norwegian songwriter Susanne Sundfør who has collaborated previously with Maps and recently featured on the M83 soundtrack for the film "Oblivion". Further remix work was executed by dutch electronic artist Legowelt and The Invisible alongside a remix from Maps himself.
Maps recorded his "Start Something" EP by himself on his 16-track recorder and released it on his own record label, Last Space Recordings, in 2006. His first full album "We Can Create" was released on Mute Records in 2007. The next album "Turning the Mind", was released in 2009.
