The Her Records co-founder slows things down for the NYC label.
Purple Tape Pedigree has announced Body Horror, a series of split singles that explore the “space and movement within the cavernous reaches of 90-120 beats per minute.”
The first release in the series is a split by Gang Fatale (the pairing of Trap Door and Ra’s Al Fatale) and Her Records’ CYPHR. While Gang Fatale use the mid-tempo range to toy with two tracks of syrupy funk, CYPHR delivers damaged dembow (‘Lone Peak’) and deconstructed grime (‘Cold Call’).
Stream the smoky, yearning ‘Cold Call’ below. Body Horror I is due out tomorrow (October 9) and is available to pre-order.
