New Label New Music : Untold’s 2014 Roundup


2014 was a landmark year for Untold, as he released his critically acclaimed debut album ‘Black Light Spiral’, began performing live for the first time and gave away his ‘Echo In The Valley’ ambient mixtape at the years close. 

‘The apocalypse never sounded so appealing’ was how SPIN described ‘Black Light Spiral’ whilst awarding it their album of the month with a 9/10 review, which proceeded equally positive reviews from Pitchfork (7.6/10), Resident Advisor (4/5), Mixmag (8/10) and more – following this, the album also featured high on the end of year lists from FACT (23rd) and Crack Magazine (16th) amongst others.

To coincide with the album release Untold also debuted his first ever live show, playing across Europe, North and South America and Asia for such iconic promoters and venues such as Berghain, Bloc, Dekmantel, Output and more. Towards the end of 2014 Untold released ‘That Horn Track’ on Bleep / Warp backed with a Marcel Dettman remix after the track became a stand out on the previous Bleep:10 compilation and warranted its own release.

2015 has already seen Untold release his first dance floor 12” of the year in ‘Doff’ which sold out in a matter of days. As he plans to release his follow up album before the end of the year he’s reimagined his live show and will be launching it across the UK, North America and Japan in the first half of 2015.
