Glasgow’s Lanark Artefax to release EP on Whities
More killer sounds from the promising young producer.
Lanark Artefax came to prominence last year with an EP for Lee Gamble’s UIQ label, with fractured rhythms and icy melodies that recalled the early music of Aphex Twin and Autechre.
Released on June 9, his new Whities EP is in much the same vein, throwing in OPN-style MIDI choirs and a bit of ‘90s euphoria for good measure.
The record’s sleeve was designed by Whities art director Alex McCullough and features a comic panel illustrated by comic book artist Joseph P Kelly. It’s the second Lanark Artefax record on the label after a limited white label release last year.
The label has been tweeting coordinates in the run up to the record’s release, with the record itself telling the loose story of a death cult of storm chasers. Head to the Whities Twitter page and Google Maps if you want go down the Lanark Artefax rabbit hole.
