L’Orient Clip

With roots in post-punk & reggae, Jpye has been in bands or producing for over 20 years. Influenced by the mid-90 Paris french house scene, he started incorporating electronic instruments and drum machines into his music and started DJing. He has been releasing materials over the years on several labels under the Twonk moniker and performing on Stupid Human and Leonidas & Hobbes prods.

Ooh La La Clip

Analogue producer and audiophile partyman, Leonidas, fell in love with disco aged 5 and his life’s journey has taken him via house music, David Mancuso’s London loft parties plus his own long running lovetoparty house parties, events and even edits label.

His debut “Sequential EP” was released on Kay Suzuki’s Round In Motion label in 2012, to acclaim from a broad range of musicians and DJs, from Manuel Gottsching to Theo Parrish. He subsequently collaborated on 2 vinyl EPs (Synqlock Vol I & II) with Kay Suzuki to wide acclaim. Another long term collaboration with his close friend and label owner Hobbes has yielded 3 vinyl EPs, their 3rd (The Rags of Time EP) spawning the underground balearic disco hit “Web of Intrigue” which was voted no 1 in Bill Brewster’s Furtive top 50 original tracks of 2017 DJ poll.

These productions have resulted in several remix requests, with 3 forthcoming remixes on Stupid Human Records, Innsbruck’s Mont Lake Records and Portuguese house label Percebes. He is currently working on his debut album.

Bugjam (Twonk Acid Mix) Clip

A regular on the London underground boogie, deep house and disco/nu-disco scene for over 15 years, and has been collecting records and djing throughout that time. He brings not only great dancefloor knowledge, but also creative ideas in the studio.

Twonk & Friends ‘Out 29th March’ [ec0011]


Spring isn’t just in the air, it’s in every step of the four tracks on this relay race of an EP. eclectics have come up with the goods once again by approaching Twonk (Jpye, Leonadis and IamrobD), who drafted in Stupid Human in order to produce a textured and layered release that is as varied and ambitious as it is coherent and focused.


The musical reference points are big, bold and broad: from insistent and twitching acid rumbles, heavy boogie inflections and the flat, sheer surface of ambient synths, to vocoders, pitched-down disco and polished guitar shining with 80s pop sheen and Balearic sparkle.
Jpye and Leonidas are first up with the mid-paced “L’Orient”, in which crystalline synths builds to a wobbling peak with admirable restraint while phased acid pulses shift around the summit. Percussive guitar allows the pads to really take off without fear of losing the plot. It’s deep as you like while reaching as high as it can.

Jpye joins forces with Stupid Human for “Ooh La La”. The introduction appears like an answer to the age-old question, “What would Boards of Canada sound like with Vakula on bass and Aphex Twin on keys?” It proves to be a drop of the shoulder however – a beautiful feint, before the track sidesteps in the direction of slow-dance, blissed out boogie with heavy-lidded eyes and slinking shoulders. Funk-flecked guitar stabs and synth squeals are given beautiful backdrops, all childish voices and underwater colours.

Meanwhile, Stupid Human offers up “Bugjam” to the group for a remix, and the results are astonishing. Part acid house jam, part dubbed-out leftfield disco, the almost subterranean vocal refrain urges feet to the floor as it ushers in a newfound urgency in a tune that is precision-engineered to get things moving. It’s about three years too short, but we might be splitting hairs.

Last up is Twonk with “Woo Wah Wah”, a slow thumper of a track with a bottom end so heavy it’s a wonder it can stand. Hazy top notes find room to breathe as gentle keys and rhythmic guitar stabs sit on top of pulsing bass notes and the slow dance starts again in earnest. Heads nod, feet move, hearts bloom – it’s that kind of a party…
Eclectics release Twonk and Friends by Twonk and Stupid Human on March 29th
