Upstepping – the new mini-album by the cellist, composer and producer Oliver Coates – is, like its creator, defined by its contrasts. On first listen, Coates’ description of it as “pumped-up body music” feels perfectly apt – it’s a bedroom recording fuelled by caffeine, nervous energy and early Orbital and Photek – but deconstructed, destabilising and even sinister elements soon emerge. Coates himself, a globally lauded soloist, juggles appearances in Europe’s grandest concert halls with long-running, wide-ranging collaborations with like-minded artists, from the experimental composers Jonny Greenwood and Mica Levi to the electronic musician and producer Actress.
