The 14-track LP is his first L.I.E.S. release since 2013.
According to the label, Aftershock is an album in “the tradition of classic Chicago beat track records like Jesse Velez’s “Super Rhythm Tracks” or Duane Thamm’s D-Rail and R-Trax”. It’s described as “straight up Saturday night WBMX mixshow material” full of sparse rhythms, fat FM basslines and Italo arpeggios.
“Standing strong on their own or to be layered and slammed in and out the mix, these are true to form old school cuts falling in line with the great tradition of dance music’s past which is all too often lost in the wind these days,” the label says.
Edwards, whose real name is Brandon Avery Perlman, released his debut on Ron Morelli’s L.I.E.S. label back in 2012 with the 4 Club Use Only 12″. However, his last release on the label was 2013’s White Owl 12″.
You can buy Aftershock on 2LP format from the L.I.E.S. store. Earlier this year, L.I.E.S. released an EP from ex-Napalm Death drummer Mick Harris under his Fret alias.
