Through the idea of call and response, electronic music producer Intriguant and guitarist CJP attempt to create and communicate through sound and transport you into a textural soundscape filled with improvised beats. Expect to be engaged through this sonic journey of discovery.
Intriguant is a Singapore-based electronic music producer and DJ. Inspired by the human perception of environments, he uses textural sounds recorded through the years, and backs them with syncopated beats, fusing the physical with the spiritual.
He released his debut EP Ellipse on the Syndicate label in 2014. Ellipse found Intriguant acclaim with critics spanning Israel, Slovakia, and the US. For the title track off the EP, he collaborated with label mate Brandon Tay to produce a music video that found favour with respected music magazine The Fader (NYC).
His debut full-length album Recluse was released in 2017 under Syndicate with acclaim from a global audience (ranging from USA, UK, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong, Manila (PH)). Featuring other artists from Singapore, the album as an entity explores the notion of loneliness and self-discovery. He has shared the stage with luminaries such as Thomas Schumacher (GER), Teebs, Flying Lotus (Brainfeeder, USA), Homeboy Sandman, Samiyam (Stones Throw Records, USA) and Daddy Kev, D-Styles (Low End Theory LA, USA). He has also performed at music festivals including the St Jerome’s Laneway Festival and Sing Jazz.
