San Francisco’s Brandon Nickell preps a bumper EP for new West Coast imprint Ge-stell.
As boss of the influential Isounderscore label, Nickell managed to notch up releases from Concern, Nicholas Szczepanik, Acre and more, and now he decamps to fresh label Ge-stell (who debuted last week with a new 12″ from Dalglish) for his latest drop.
Skyline brings together a wide variety of his influences, fusing obtuse dance-influenced sounds with frenetic beats and tumbling hip-hop rhythms, but never losing that all-important sense of melody. You can hear two of the EP’s highlights below and check out a video for the epic title track, and hear exactly what we’re banging on about.
Skyline is due for release on October 14 on limited edition clear vinyl, via Ge-stell.
