Say Hello To Matt Robertson…

We recently welcomed a new member to the squad. Enter Matt Robertson, composer, producer and synthesist, with his album ‘In Echelon‘ landing on 7th October.

The Line Of Best Fit premiered “Hold”, the first track taken from the album:

“…a magnificent five-and-a-half minutes of wild, electronic sound. It morphs in (mostly) subtle ways, opening with ambient-ish tones before gradually snowballing into a leviathan web of layers and textures and details. What begins quite free and open slowly descends into claustrophobic depths.”

More to follow from us, but for now check out “Hold” below:

Hairy Hands Returns…

HH-18-72dpi

Our very own cosmic audio noodler Hairy Hands returns, this time with debut album “Magic” landing on Planet Earth on 2nd September 2016 (via Tape Club WW ex US and New Los Angeles for North America).

In the meantime, he’s shared a teaser track “Suns” to whet your appetite – premiered by Clash yesterday (check out their article here).

Says James: “Suns was one of the first tracks I worked on for this album. It started life as a simple drone/drum break and grew & changed shape from there. I wanted the album to explore my interest in space travel/sci-fi/b-movies and built a story about a time in the future where planet Earth has lost its Sun. The song follows the young and old of planet Earth on the beginnings of their search for a new home in outer space. The chorus also reflects the fact that we all have a Sun within us to grow things and share our warmth for our fellow species/others and the surroundings we inhabit. . Using an old reel to reel to resample parts (warp/time stretch) of an old Yamaha synthesiser I’d played and adding layers of trombone and moving them around.”
