Berlin-based producer and Arcane Patterns label co-founder Alienationist announces the release of his debut album in August exploring a heady fog of refracted jungle, potent breaks, rave textures and mutated lyrics – sitting somewhere between the lines of Rezzett, Zomby, Madteo and Demdike Stare.
The lengthily titled album is said to be the result of “intense psycho-geographic journeys through cities, forests, malls, and data highways on which loose dots of ordinariness lying around were connected and put into dialogue with bass-heavy club music, sardonic poetry, queer theory, sonic fiction, and field recordings.”
The album includes a self-printable poster and a short PDF booklet of poetry, some of which appears in the tracks. The eight tracks are dialectic tales of self-doubt, loneliness, reality dysphoria, and precarity. Yet, they evoke a space of radical autonomy that celebrates rather than lament alienation as a default condition of life.
‘Don’t Worry, You Can Always Be Reborn As a Screenshot’ is scheduled for release 5 August. Order a copy from Bandcamp.
