The NYC-based producer describes the new EP, due on Purple Tape Pedigree, as a “score to self-examination through a lens ground up from past bouts with vulnerability and physicality.” He also simply calls it his “ugly, slimy demon baby”.
The latter descriptor fits on ‘Secrets’ and its bricolage of shattered club sounds too sharp to fit in an actual club. Still, the producer drops generous, but brief, moments of light on the track that gives a sense of relief from all the sonic wreckage.
Listen to ‘Secrets’ below and pre-order From The Womb from PTP before its April 22 release in a limited run of 30 12″ press on clear vinyl.
