Originally conceived as a pseudonym, the Polymar moniker was intended as a new workspace for Kel McKeown aka Kelpe to explore a more minimal and meditative sound, and an opportunity to work with more expansive durations and soundscapes. In 2018, Kelpe released a series of tracks which were designed to follow on from each other, with each track allocated a name corresponding to the alphabet. Here, on ‘A Polymar Compendium’, McKeown has remixed, re-edited and re-worked the tracks into a coherent double album format, and also composed three bonus tracks which close out the sequence.
Now listeners have a chance to own A Polymar Compendium on vinyl for the first time. The first three sides of vinyl correspond to each original EP, and the final side contains three bonus tracks.
Record label in London founded by Kelpe in 2013.
