RIYL: tar pits

Label: Always Human Tapes

The cover to Lone Dancer’s Unrest tells you what you need to know. The (I think) 64-bit art is fractured and unforgiving. A spiraling pattern of black and purple paints itself on to the digital crystals. Now, do these crystals perhaps hint at ice from another dimension? Perhaps. The BPM, combined with that (unironically) filthy bass, on Unrest takes your eardrums to the cleaners and it’ll make you feel like you’re on meth. Unrest takes a battering ram in to your psyche and then makes itself at home in no time at all. Unrest, without missing a beat, graffitis the walls and starts lighting the fixtures on fire. The album isn’t necessarily inconsiderate of the listener with its roughly hewn compositions, but it does request you to push the envelope of where techno can go. I’m thinking it’s a gleaming tar pit.  Listen to Unrest below via the Bandcamp player and see what you think of it. Cheers!

The Details

After a string of material, both self-released and for Jacktone Records, we present Lone Dancer, a hard-working friend of Denver's Deep Club crew. On Unrest, LD proves to be equally at home crafting long-form 4x4 tracks, tonally twisted modular soundscapes. as well as experimenting with broken rhythms and breaks. The result matches Lone Dancer's self-described basement vibe, coupled with impactful delivery. Unrest makes for a varied and personal document of a dedicated solo artist, one whose evolution is sure to continue.
