Our first new release in 2015 also marks the label debut of Cleveland-bred soundsmith asound - thoroughly trained on all sorts of musical input devices, this newcoming producer nevertheless boasts a uniquely intuitive approach to electronic music. Sitting comfortably between genre chairs, these sonics are difficult to categorize, but easy to understand, rich in atmospheric textures and melodic outbursts. At first glance, the deeply engaging soundscapes and hazy rhythms might seem like a detour for the label that brought you the techno cut-up lunacy of Bryan Kessler or the smoldering acid loops of Camp Inc. - however, asound's multitimbral jams quickly reveal ascendancies from both the dance floor and living room factions, meticulously carving out their own cozy habitat. Yeah, you guessed it: all killers, no fillers!
