Release:2011 / US – Reissue
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Remaster of 2008 classic ten years after release. RIYL: Gas, Fennesz, Basic Channel, Tim Hecker "Running a guitar through a variety of looping, reverb, and delaystations, he uses the E-bow, the slide, and tentative picking techniques to circumvent the physical essence of the strings and to marshal clouds of edgeless tone." -Pitchfork "... a fresh slant on that post-classical sound that's so rarely executed with any originality but which is here crafted with an expert hand. ...A massive recommendation = Essential Purchase" - Boomkat There's a beating heart buried in the cold landscape of Glider, a warm 4/4 pulse that enervates the album's echoing, looped drones and pulls the listener swiftly through the snow. By pinning barelythereelectronic beats to his wisps of guitar melody, the Seattle-based producer turns ambient music into a hybrid strain of breathtakingly intimate, small-scale dance music. There's a separation of elements in The Sight Below's songs that's almost meteorological in nature: Tendrils of treated guitar trail lazy patterns in the sky like the Aurora Borealis ("At First Touch"), flicker in the distance like heat lightning("Dour"), or expand and contract like time-lapse cloud formations ("Life's Fading Light"); running along beneath, nearly obscured by the airborne phenomena, is anever-present beat, which ranges from the mud-puddle throb in "Without Motion" to the tiny, insistent high-hats in "A Fractured Smile." The tracks evolve at a deliberatedpace, but as the tones overlap and the rhythms build, time oozes to a halt and hangs in blissfully frost-bitten suspended animation. With Glider, The Sight Below hascreated a work of vertiginous sonic depth and exquisite melancholy: techno music for a dark, brooding night.

Release:2014 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
For nearly a decade, Tycho has been known as the musical alias of Scott Hansen, but with the release of Awake – his second LP for Ghostly International – the solo project has evolved into a three-piece band. Relating closer to post-rock than ambient soundscapes, the record is situated in the present, sounding more like Hansen than drawing from his influences. “This is, in many ways, the first true Tycho record.”

Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Formerly member of beloved 00's electronic experimental band Emeralds. · Featuresvocal contributions from Julianna Barwick & GABI. In search of the sublime,contemporary electronic musician Steve Hauschildt has designed grids andpanoramas of sound across multiple releases through the rise and dissolution of hisformer band, Emeralds, an American touchstone of 2000s home-recordedpsychedelic noise music. Consistent with his solo work is Hauschildt's ability to coilhis craft in precise, varied, and distinctly physical forms. Gently spinning arpeggiosconverse with post-industrial decay. Sonic fibers sway like pendulums from staticmelancholy to motorik bliss. Dissolvi, the artist's first full-length with GhostlyInternational, engages sublimation from an ontological perspective: by dissociatingthe self. Hauschildt steps out from the singular path, for the first time in a traditionalstudio, to compose and arrange contributions from friends. As a result, his mostcollaborative work to date extends a vast, vibrating framework in which to considerthe state of being.

Genre:Electronic / Dance
Beacon's third full-length record enters sight as a work of meticulous revision and refraction.Returning home to New York in 2016, four years and several tours since the duo's firstrelease with Ghostly International, Thomas Mullarney III and Jacob Gossett knew the nextdirection would be di-erent. Together they embarked on open-ended sessions, adopting amore linear style of songwriting compared to their previous loop and texture-driven method.They fundamentally constructed demos from piano chords and guitar phrases with vocalmelodies, editing iterations almost ad infinitum, looking through each from a multitude ofangles. Compositions expanded, while others pared back to where they began. Like thebending of light, this abstractive and patient process outlines a space and scale in whichseemingly separate colors _ minimalist ballads, elaborate pop spirituals, and four-on-the-floordance sequences _ can coexist at di-erent speeds, fanning out with spectral cohesion. Aprismatic collection Beacon call Gravity Pairs. On Gravity Pairs, Beacon channel thephilosophy with pure pop mystique, slicing through dense and foggy dance and electronicmusic apparatuses to create something familiar but unique, melodic but cathartic. Ripplingthrough these songs are iridescent synthesizer lines, stoic piano phrasing, dazzling percussion,posh harpsichord, understated xylophone, and a crisp voice in complete control. Taken as awhole, in their various combinations and compressions, these complementary and secondarytones unlock the lushest field of color, a universe of light.

"It's a relaxing andslightly displaced vibe that informs the project. It's full of art everywhere, all mycomics, an amazing media set up," Wiesenfeld says. "It's all the stu that I've saved forand wanted to have in my life but didn't feel comfortable [setting up] until I moved inhere. We nested the shit out of this place." "So much of dance music is aboutpartying and going out and having a really hardcore social experience," Wiesenfeldsays. "Dance music has never been that for me.

Genre:Electronic / Dance
The neon vinyl version is limited to 500 copies worldwide. A fresh debut from oneof the most vital electronic producers of the last 20 years, Tadd Mullinix (Dabrye,JTC, Charles Manier), who looks to the past of techno and jungle to find new waysforward. the music itself is a unique refraction of styles and bold, contradictoryapproaches. But it all blends together uncannily well-maybe because of the decadesof production experience that went into it, or the holistic mindset Mullinix tookfrom the beginning. The name itself reflects as much. "X-Altera references twothings. It comes from Latin-ex altera-which means 'from or of the other side.'Which could be a metaphysical thing, or you could say it's jungle ethics broughtinto the techno world. And I spelled it this way as a reference to X-101 and X102,the Underground Resistance project of Je& Mills, Mike Banks, and RobertHood." Detroit meets London, deep techno meets drum & bass, old meets newX-Alteraunites these threads in order to take them in unknown directions.

Als Tadd Mullinix vor 20 Jahren damit begann, als Dabrye HipHop zu machen, erschloss sich ihm sehr schnell eine Visiondessen, was das Genre sein könnte: ausgeklügelt, raffiniert undwagemutig. Dieser Vision näherte er sich auf den zwei Alben„One/Three“ (2001) und „Two/Three“ (2006) für GhostlyInternational mit Nachdruck an: Mit jedem Album positioniertesich der eher ruhige Produzent aus Michigan als einer der bestenseiner Generation, der sich genauso wohl damit fühlte,minimalistische instrumentale Stücke zu erschaffen wie auchschärfste Raps abzufeuern.Zum Ende des Jahrzehnts, nach Lob und Anerkennung vonKritikern, Vorbildern und Zeitgenossen (darunter der inzwischenverstorbene Jay Dee, mit dem Mullinix kurz vor seinem Tod vonkollaborierte), legte er Dabrye auf Eis, um sich anderen Genresund Ideen zu widmen. Jetzt aber ist wieder alles anders, dennDabrye läutet mit „Three/Three“ seine Rückkehr ein: Einrasiermesserscharfes Rap Album, das eine prophetische Trilogiebeschließt. Mit dabei ist die Indie Rap Legende Doom, der WuTang Clan Geschichtenerzählter Ghostface Killah, derWortakrobat Jonwayne aus L.A. und der Long IslandSurrealist Roc Marciano. Am wichtigsten ist jedoch, dass„Three/Three“ exakt wie sein Vorgänger ohne jeglicheZurückhaltung das Talent aus der Area um Detroit feiert:Guilty Simpson, Phat Kat, Kadence, Quelle Chris,Danny Brown, Shigeto, Clear Soul Forces vieleandere sind bei Dabryes Rückkehr an Bord..

Genre:Electronic / Dance
Matthew Dear's Black City can't be found on any map. It's a composite, an imaginarymetropolis peopled by desperate cases, lovelorn souls, and amoral motives. Likemost literary Gothams, Black City is a place to love and hate, as seedy as anightclub's back room and as seductive as the promise of power. Matthew Dear, themusician, may live in New York City, but the Matthew Dear of Black City inhabits asound-world unlike any other: a monument to the shadowy side of urban life thatbumps and creaks, shudders and wakes up screaming in the middle of the night.Black City is Matthew Dear's third album on Ghostly International, and it's hisdarkest and most engrossing work to date. From the first notes of album opener"Honey", it's clear that the love-obsessed Matthew Dear of 2007's Asa Breed hasgiven way to a more existentially paranoid entity, as creeping tempos dominate,cavernous atmospherics envelop the listener, and strange distortions crackle on thehorizon. In Black City, nothing is at it seems: leadoff single "Little People (BlackCity)" is a nine-and-a-half minute disco odyssey, subverting its gleaming electroniclead with eerily giddy backing vocals and cryptic, ominous lyrics ("a frozen wastedheart / has died", "love me like a clown"); "You Put a Smell on Me" is a sordid sexromp set to hysterically chattering percussion and a serrated synth line that will setyour teeth on edge; "More Surgery" at first recalls the barely-there Krautrock ofHarmonia in its burbling minimalism, until Dear's chanted chorus of "Alter genetics /to make my body glow / I need more surgery / there's so much more to know"sends the track hurtling into a dystopian future. And yet, for all the forebodingmoods on Black City, it's the album's sweeter moments that illustrate MatthewDear's growing maturity as a songwriter. "Slowdance" is a futuristic lullaby in whichDear articulates a lover's helplessness ("I can't be the one to tell you everything'swrong") over breathy, Arthur Russell-esque cello swishes; the album-closing "Gem"is an achingly simple, reverb-drenched piano ballad that ends with a long, slow fade.Even in Matthew Dear's Black City, there is hope.

„Es war der wunderbarste Sommer meines Lebens.“ Erinnerungen – Orte, Leere,Andeutungen – sind die fundamentalen Elemente im tiefgründigenHandwerk von Mary Lattimore. Innerhalb ihrer Musik verbindensich wortlose Erzählungen, endlose Reiseberichte und verknüpfteEreignisse zu etwas bezauberndem Neuen. Die Harfenspielerein ausLos Angeles nahm ihre bahnbrechendes 2016er Album „At TheDam“ auf einem Roadtrip durch Amerika, wo die heiterenLandschaften von Joshua Tree und Marfa in Texas ihrenKompositionen Farbe verliehen. 2017 präsentierte sie mit „CollectedPieces“ eine Zusammenstellung ihres alten Lebens in Philadelphia:Oden an die Ostküste, brennende Motels und kleine Supermärkte inTouristenstädten mit Strand. „Hundreds Of Days“, ihr zweitesAlbum für Ghostly International, entstand an einer Stelle der Ruhe:einer Holzscheune in den Bergen über der Golden Gate Bridge. DasAlbum wechselt zwischen Sprache und Stille, zwischen Vignetten desAlltags und den großen Zusammenhängen des Universums, zwischendem Gefühl eine Fremden an vielversprechenden neuen Orten unddem Gefühl, der Heimat entrissen zu werden. Das ist ein großesneuen Kapitel in der Geschichte Lattimores und Ausdruch einerverwunderten Dankbarkeit. Ein Studie darüber, wie sich gewöhnlicheElemente verbinden, um etwas Ungewöhnliches zu erschaffen.

Genre:Electronic / Dance
It's been four years since Zach Saginaw, aka Shigeto, returned home to Michigan from a stint in Brooklyn, NY, and since then, the multi-faceted musician has become a part of the fabric of Detroit's music scene.While always having a personal approach to his projects, Saginaw's influences for his third album, "The New Monday" are more about the community of Detroit than anything else and represents a communal effort where solidarity is the key.Going for a simplified approach of just trying to make good tracks, "The New Monday" is diverse in its styles leaning more into a dance music direction - new ground for a Shigeto project.While it still features the jazz textures long associated with Shigeto projects, the varied elements that make up the album cohesively come together to show the distinct inspiration that Saginaw has drew from since his return home to Detroit.Like on "Barry White", which features Detroit hip-hop artist ZelooperZ (a member of Danny Brown's Bruiser Brigade crew who Saginaw also has a side project with called ZGTO), Saginaw captures everything he's been doing all on one track.As much as it's hip-hop influenced, it's a mutant that encompasses elements of dance music, jazz, and ambient sounds.

Genre:Electronic / Dance
When Moiré decided to call his second album No Future, he wasn’t trying to make a political statement so much as state the obvious: If humanity keeps heading down the hateful path outlined by certain right-wing political figures and recent political events, we might as well hit the nearest self-destruct button.Today’s musicians are faced with a similar now-or-never situation: they can either experiment and evolve or get brushed aside by the Next Big Thing in an industry that’s as flippant and fickle as it’s ever been. Moiré welcomes this challenge with a record that’s avant-garde and accessible, possessing a punk spirit without stealing its sound wholesale. No Future builds its story on the back of halogen-lit hooks and left-field dance loops instead, leaving a trail of breadcrumb-y beats for guest vocalists like MC DRS (a longtime collaborator of LTJ Bukem) and post-grime poet James Massiah. They both tackled the album's loose themes without being told about them beforehand. They simply got it. Immediately.Modeling his machine funk melodies after the sci-fi stories of Philip K. Dick is certainly a nice start, as it leads to songs that feel both futuristic and strangely human. Or as Moiré —a former architect with a deep interest in design—puts it, “His books are like paintings of what’s going to happen; they’re always rooted in reality and current issues. No Future is about where we are as a society right now, too. It makes me think of four words: fear, hypocrisy, inequality, and lies.No Future also captures a fading sense of what makes our cities so special—a celebration of art itself, something that’s been threatened by the rising cost of real estate and the steady closure of major clubs like Fabric and Plastic People. That explains why a smoke-clearing song like “Lost You” is about more than just a mere relationship. It alludes to a complete lack of communication and the loss of, well, everything—our societies, our countries, our families, and our friends.

One year after Michigan-based artist Zach Saginaw released his third album asShigeto, a genre-blending Detroit love letter called The New Monday, he returnswith another eclectic display of aection for the musical community that makesMotor City music tick. The four new tracks on his Weighted EP, including asumptuous remix from Detroit house luminary Andrés, continue to refine andaugment the patchwork of jazz, hip-hop, and electronics that Shigeto has built hiscatalog with. But far be it from Saginaw to repeat himself. Whether it's the heavy,disjointed beats of "Fight Club" or the vibey house roller "The Line Up (feat. IanFink)," Weighted drops as many low-key surprises as it does smokey grooves. Atrack as blown-out and deceptively simple as "Ooh Ooh" might at first feel like ananomaly coming from Shigeto_ once the cacophonous production settles in,however, it clearly bears the mark of a master producer flexing new muscles. Andthat's true of Weighted as a whole. Saginaw is pushing his music into fresh spaces,forming imaginative shapes while keeping his focus on the city and culture that sodeeply inspires him.

Aprismatic collection Beacon call Gravity Pairs. On Gravity Pairs, Beacon channel thephilosophy with pure pop mystique, slicing through dense and foggy dance and electronicmusic apparatuses to create something familiar but unique, melodic but cathartic. Ripplingthrough these songs are iridescent synthesizer lines, stoic piano phrasing, dazzling percussion,posh harpsichord, understated xylophone, and a crisp voice in complete control. Taken as awhole, in their various combinations and compressions, these complementary and secondarytones unlock the lushest field of color, a universe of light.

A fresh debut from oneof the most vital electronic producers of the last 20 years, Tadd Mullinix (Dabrye,JTC, Charles Manier), who looks to the past of techno and jungle to find new waysforward. the music itself is a unique refraction of styles and bold, contradictoryapproaches. But it all blends together uncannily well-maybe because of the decadesof production experience that went into it, or the holistic mindset Mullinix tookfrom the beginning. The name itself reflects as much. "X-Altera references twothings. It comes from Latin-ex altera-which means 'from or of the other side.'Which could be a metaphysical thing, or you could say it's jungle ethics broughtinto the techno world. And I spelled it this way as a reference to X-101 and X102,the Underground Resistance project of Je& Mills, Mike Banks, and RobertHood." Detroit meets London, deep techno meets drum & bass, old meets newX-Alteraunites these threads in order to take them in unknown directions.

„Es war der wunderbarste Sommer meines Lebens.“ Erinnerungen – Orte, Leere,Andeutungen – sind die fundamentalen Elemente im tiefgründigenHandwerk von Mary Lattimore. Innerhalb ihrer Musik verbindensich wortlose Erzählungen, endlose Reiseberichte und verknüpfteEreignisse zu etwas bezauberndem Neuen. Die Harfenspielerein ausLos Angeles nahm ihre bahnbrechendes 2016er Album „At TheDam“ auf einem Roadtrip durch Amerika, wo die heiterenLandschaften von Joshua Tree und Marfa in Texas ihrenKompositionen Farbe verliehen. 2017 präsentierte sie mit „CollectedPieces“ eine Zusammenstellung ihres alten Lebens in Philadelphia:Oden an die Ostküste, brennende Motels und kleine Supermärkte inTouristenstädten mit Strand. „Hundreds Of Days“, ihr zweitesAlbum für Ghostly International, entstand an einer Stelle der Ruhe:einer Holzscheune in den Bergen über der Golden Gate Bridge. DasAlbum wechselt zwischen Sprache und Stille, zwischen Vignetten desAlltags und den großen Zusammenhängen des Universums, zwischendem Gefühl eine Fremden an vielversprechenden neuen Orten unddem Gefühl, der Heimat entrissen zu werden. Das ist ein großesneuen Kapitel in der Geschichte Lattimores und Ausdruch einerverwunderten Dankbarkeit. Ein Studie darüber, wie sich gewöhnlicheElemente verbinden, um etwas Ungewöhnliches zu erschaffen.

Nur eine pro Kunde! Als Tadd Mullinix vor 20 Jahren damit begann, als Dabrye HipHop zu machen, erschloss sich ihm sehr schnell eine Visiondessen, was das Genre sein könnte: ausgeklügelt, raffiniert undwagemutig. Dieser Vision näherte er sich auf den zwei Alben„One/Three“ (2001) und „Two/Three“ (2006) für GhostlyInternational mit Nachdruck an: Mit jedem Album positioniertesich der eher ruhige Produzent aus Michigan als einer der bestenseiner Generation, der sich genauso wohl damit fühlte,minimalistische instrumentale Stücke zu erschaffen wie auchschärfste Raps abzufeuern.Zum Ende des Jahrzehnts, nach Lob und Anerkennung vonKritikern, Vorbildern und Zeitgenossen (darunter der inzwischenverstorbene Jay Dee, mit dem Mullinix kurz vor seinem Tod vonkollaborierte), legte er Dabrye auf Eis, um sich anderen Genresund Ideen zu widmen. Jetzt aber ist wieder alles anders, dennDabrye läutet mit „Three/Three“ seine Rückkehr ein: Einrasiermesserscharfes Rap Album, das eine prophetische Trilogiebeschließt. Mit dabei ist die Indie Rap Legende Doom, der WuTang Clan Geschichtenerzählter Ghostface Killah, derWortakrobat Jonwayne aus L.A. und der Long IslandSurrealist Roc Marciano. Am wichtigsten ist jedoch, dass„Three/Three“ exakt wie sein Vorgänger ohne jeglicheZurückhaltung das Talent aus der Area um Detroit feiert:Guilty Simpson, Phat Kat, Kadence, Quelle Chris,Danny Brown, Shigeto, Clear Soul Forces vieleandere sind bei Dabryes Rückkehr an Bord..

It's been four years since Zach Saginaw, aka Shigeto, returned home to Michigan from a stint in Brooklyn, NY, and since then, the multi-faceted musician has become a part of the fabric of Detroit's music scene.While always having a personal approach to his projects, Saginaw's influences for his third album, "The New Monday" are more about the community of Detroit than anything else and represents a communal effort where solidarity is the key.Going for a simplified approach of just trying to make good tracks, "The New Monday" is diverse in its styles leaning more into a dance music direction - new ground for a Shigeto project.While it still features the jazz textures long associated with Shigeto projects, the varied elements that make up the album cohesively come together to show the distinct inspiration that Saginaw has drew from since his return home to Detroit.Like on "Barry White", which features Detroit hip-hop artist ZelooperZ (a member of Danny Brown's Bruiser Brigade crew who Saginaw also has a side project with called ZGTO), Saginaw captures everything he's been doing all on one track.As much as it's hip-hop influenced, it's a mutant that encompasses elements of dance music, jazz, and ambient sounds.

Punky noise, woozy hip-hop and oddball electronics are throwing a rager and it's a colorful one. Such is the basis for new Ghostly signee Psymun's Rainbow Party EP, a three-track foray into the far reaches of Hip-Hop from the Minnesotan music-maker.As part of the acclaimed Thestand4rd project (including fellow Minnesotans Corbin (aka Spooky Black), Bobby Raps and Allan Kingdom) as well as solo work on the Pink Label - Psymun returns with a sonic statement that's as emotive and adventurous as the impressive as the work he's supplied his crew with.EP opener "Glitch Tundra" features frequent collabora- tor Chester Watson dropping in over a sweeping, ominous beat, all fog and chilly echo.Stretching out over seven minutes, an ominous vocal sweeps overhead while synths stagger upwards and dip beneath before a psychedelic, rowdy turn rips deep into the project's heart.The rest of Rainbow Party doubles-down on the project's noise influence. Borne out of a prompt from Ryan Olson of fellow Minneapolis outfit Poliça, Psymun endeavored to make a set of music entirely at 55 bpm, and two of his experiments evolved into the finished tracks included here."I Need My Boy," in a departure from some of his prior production work, relies almost entirely on an arsenal of hardware to thump and wail; a voltaic and warm sonic quality which Psymun says even he finds hard to emulate without his newly acquired synthesizers."Confetti" also makes use of analogue equipment, but works within a palette that may be more familiar to the producer's fans: jangly percussion and aquatic melody intertwine for a slow-burning but dynamic exercise in leftfield beatmaking.As the track draws to a close, vocalist K.Raydiodrops in for a phantasmagoric few bars before the noisy cannon blows once more.It's an aptly titled closer, streamers drifting from above as the festivities come to an end: a party to be remem- bered in technicolor.

From his early releases as Lusine onward, Jeff McIlwain’s electronic explorations make up one of the more diverse discographies of the past decade and a half. Effortlessly blurring the lines between techno, electro-pop and experimental composition, the Texas-raised/Seattle-based producer’s arrangements are meticulously constructed, but also filled with emotion and soul. With an introspective turn that’s hinted at in the record title, Lusine’s fourth album for Ghostly sees McIlwain diffusing the pop-leanings of 2013’s The Waiting Room with opaque, brush-stroked melodies washing over these new buoyant productions.“I suppose the concept behind Sensorimotor pulls from a special kind of double meaning of the word,” McIlwain reveals. “The literal, to me, is the integration of your senses with actions, like with birds and how they move so fluidly in flocks. It’s just fascinating how their brains are able to comprehend such quick actions collectively at once.”“The symbolic is a bit harder to put into words,” he adds. “I guess it’s just the concept of figuring out how much control you have over your artistic output—what types of restrictions you should place on it versus how much of it just involves instinct and intuitiveness.”Indeed, Sensorimotor is a visceral album, with gorgeous opener “Canopy” slowly building into an empyrean cloud of music box chimes and an amorphous thrum. The following “Ticking Hands” is just as beguiling yet also more formed, with the processed melancholy vocals of McIlwain and his wife Sarah filtered into a chilling lament that unfolds over the song’s light skitters and Kraftwerkian pulse.“Sarah and I wrote this song (“Ticking Hands”) as a kind of catharsis for the time we spend apart when I’m touring,” McIlwain explains. “It’s about the idea of being somewhere and wishing your other half was there to experience those moments.”Sensorimotor finds other past Lusine collaborators returning as well, with longtime friend Benoît Pioulard’s narcotic croon looped into a swirling arpeggio during “Witness.” Vilja Larjosto also makes two appearances, with her sun-kissed vocal melodies spliced and splayed across the steady pulsing bass and fluorescent synth pads of “Just a Cloud,” and later on “Won’t Forget,” delivering a breathy processed melody atop a jaunty shuffle of cut-up woodwind instruments and keys.Working with an arsenal that includes an MPC1000, a borrowed Prophet 5, hand percussion, glockenspiel, as well as field recordings and samples of live instruments, McIlwain’s productions often merge the digital world with the real world. Yet from the fluttering Terry Riley-esque samples of woodwinds in “Chatter” to the epic, widescreen synths of “The Lift,” Sensorimotor is surprisingly cohesive throughout. Its ebb and flow forms a musical narrative that’s as much a Lusine album as it is a soundtrack for the listener’s own imagination.

Genre:Electronic / Dance
When Moiré decided to call his second album No Future, he wasn’t trying to make a political statement so much as state the obvious: If humanity keeps heading down the hateful path outlined by certain right-wing political figures and recent political events, we might as well hit the nearest self-destruct button.Today’s musicians are faced with a similar now-or-never situation: they can either experiment and evolve or get brushed aside by the Next Big Thing in an industry that’s as flippant and fickle as it’s ever been. Moiré welcomes this challenge with a record that’s avant-garde and accessible, possessing a punk spirit without stealing its sound wholesale. No Future builds its story on the back of halogen-lit hooks and left-field dance loops instead, leaving a trail of breadcrumb-y beats for guest vocalists like MC DRS (a longtime collaborator of LTJ Bukem) and post-grime poet James Massiah. They both tackled the album's loose themes without being told about them beforehand. They simply got it. Immediately.Modeling his machine funk melodies after the sci-fi stories of Philip K. Dick is certainly a nice start, as it leads to songs that feel both futuristic and strangely human. Or as Moiré —a former architect with a deep interest in design—puts it, “His books are like paintings of what’s going to happen; they’re always rooted in reality and current issues. No Future is about where we are as a society right now, too. It makes me think of four words: fear, hypocrisy, inequality, and lies.No Future also captures a fading sense of what makes our cities so special—a celebration of art itself, something that’s been threatened by the rising cost of real estate and the steady closure of major clubs like Fabric and Plastic People. That explains why a smoke-clearing song like “Lost You” is about more than just a mere relationship. It alludes to a complete lack of communication and the loss of, well, everything—our societies, our countries, our families, and our friends.

While his formative years were spent listening to everything from Yes to Photek, Scott Hansen didn't get his hands on an actual guitar or drum machine until he left his native Sacramento for San Francisco in 1995. "Encountering this whole new world at 20 years old was a profound experience," says Hansen, better known by his musical pseudonym Tycho and as the graphic artist ISO50. "At the time, I was just learning the processes of design and music, both felt very similar, and have flowed back and forth for me ever since."As seamless as his two creative outlets have been, nearly a decade passed before the release of Hansen's first proper Tycho LP, Sunrise Projector (later expanded and reissued under the title Past Is Prologue). And while three striking singles have emerged since then, the sum of all those sepia-toned parts is nowhere near the double-exposed soundscapes of Dive. The product of a prolonged break from IS050's design work and blog, it pays tribute to Tycho's prismatic past (the dense, guitar-guided turning points of 'Daydream' and 'Adrift') but spends most of its time pointing to the project's not-so- distant future.That can mean any number of things, really, from the halcyon hooks and hopeful horizons of 'A Walk' to the expansive, wildly expressive tone poetry of the title track, an eight-minute epic that unfolds like a compressed concept album. Or at the very least, a restless vision of prog-rock - one that's been coated in neon colors and filtered through a thick piece of blotter paper. And then there's 'Elegy,' a spare curtain closer that pairs a vulnerable crescendo with a fitting bridge to future works.And with that, Dive establishes its position as the most diverse musical statement of Hansen's multi-medium career, the point where his skills as a performer finally catch up with his vaporized vision of a world that doesn't belong to any particular time or place.
