Pictures Music's latest addition brings us a hazy electronica to sweep us into an exciting new year of sound

This 18-year-old Welsh producer – by way of Glasgow - is set to have a very full diary in the coming months.  In an age where new sounds are added to the flaming melting pot of genres almost every week, there is something to be said for the blissful simplicity of the beats that Koreless has been showcasing of late.  With a subtle nod to the more ambient side of electronica and its dreamy melodies, his sound has settled into a happy home with Pictures Music, and its glowing online reception has set the ball rolling for collaborations with Glasgow's Fortified Audio, All Caps and LuckyMe, as well as Dublin's All-City Records after the new year. With such a promising 2011 in store, Koreless will surely be one to watch.
