Portable Announces ‘Alan Abrahams’ Album With An Optimistic House Track

Published on Wednesday, June 15th 2016 3:20 pm

Portable is Alan Abrahams, a South African born artist, producer, and celebrated live act who has released his minimal wares on cult labels like Perlon and Live At Robert Johnson, as well as his own Süd Electronic label. Abraham’s first LP for !K7 is his most personal yet, taking the artist’s given name for its title. The album places Portable’s distinctive vocals front and center, showcasing some very real song writing skills next to Abrahams’ own piano playing, in addition to a few choice collaborators.

Having teased new music earlier this with a free download for “As For Me,” “Say It’s Going To Change” is the first official single from the album, offering a supple dose of house optimism in contrast to the earlier track’s introspection. A single package for “Say It’s Going To Change” will be available 22nd July.

‘Alan Abrahams’ is available 19th August 2016 on CD, 2LP (w. CD insert) and digital formats. Pre-orders are available now.
