Graham Fitkin: Distil
"In a strong and diverse field, the judges were impressed by the mature and beautifully judged writing through which magical sound worlds are evoked with minimal resources. Twirling the listener across the dance floor, the music never puts a foot wrong; every step fizzes with electric charge, the effervescence gradually distilling into a gentle but remarkably resilient joy. The award goes to Graham Fitkin’s Distil."
