“with tracks this epic Ibbetson clearly has a bright future ahead of him” - Complex
“a polished body of work, draped in modern electronics and textured synths.” - XLR8R
“an undulating piece of digital abstraction, forever in evolution but remarkably succinct … worth comparing to Jon Hopkins or James Holden” - Clash
“an impeccably layered slice of modern electronic music … It's intelligent. It's original. It's excellent.” - PopMatters
Taking influence from the sound design of Mark Pritchard, Brian Eno and Jon Hopkins, coupled with the dance floor ethos of Nathan Fake and Four Tet, Ibbetson has taken elements from his first two EP’s ‘Rivals’ and ‘Control Yourself’ and over time, is developing a distinct and unique sound.
In his own words Ibbetson describes the dopamine inducing future hit... “With Yours the synth driven textures are coupled with driving drums, found sounds and vocal samples, balancing ambient sensibilities with a nod to the dance floor. It’s a kaleidoscopic and colourful journey of expansive and emotive electronica.”
Lifted from his forthcoming third EP, Mind_Full, the lead track arrives three weeks before a headline London date at Bermondsey Social Club. The show is set to bring his late night electronic textures to vivid life with a 3-piece outfit comprised of live drums, synths and visuals.
Whilst still regularly performing in live bands for George Fitzgerald and Makeness, Ibbetson is steadily building an independent reputation to match, via a string of impeccably produced singles like ‘Wednesday’ which racked up over 250k streams and the BBC 6 Music-approved ‘Thistle Hotels’. Found anywhere between the dancefloor, day time radio and midnight moments on the motorway, Peter Ibbetson’s distinctive sound is taking root.
