Tzusing reflects on his debut album for L.I.E.S.

We caught up with Malaysian-born, Taipei-based producer Tzusing to find out more about his new album on Ron Morelli’s L.I.E.S. imprint and to discuss all other matters including skating, literature, punk, MTV and more.

Faster Action: Soki Loka

When Ron Morelli asked Interstellar Funk and Robert Bergman for a release as Faster Action, the latter felt it wasn’t the direction he wanted to explore next so he left Olf full room to express his “darker” side. In return the Rush Hour affiliate delivered a pair of weatherbeaten big room mover-and-shakers that shall leave a durable mark in L.I.E.S.’ modern classic catalogue.

Randomer: Puzzle With Precision

Following his release on Dekmantel’s UFO division and ahead of his appearance at Field Maneuvers, Randomer talks up his unique perspective – “I make music randomly without any pre-planning or sound in mind and within a few months I inadvertently find ways to pair them up – sort of like pieces to a puzzle”

Lipelis: Edits

Russian producer Lipelis emerges on L.I.E.S. with a tasty three-tracker of smooth-sailing, disco-sweating edits. One of the most compelling output released by the Long Island stable in recent times.

D.K. | 45 ACP

L.I.E.S. affiliate D.K. aka 45 ACP serves up a chill and suave mix full of exotica-laced, ’80s-inflected grooves, Afro beat percussions and smooth synth melodies.

Bookworms: Bookworms EP

New York producer Bookworms returns to Long Island Electrical Systems with a concrete 12” that sets the tone from the opening track. Unadulterated, unhinged and hypnotic: this techno E.P. goes through the motions with mechanical certainty.

45 ACP: Change Of Tone

“Change Of Tone” is one of those pieces where mere words cannot capture how well constructed it is. So consider this haphazard arrangement of basic English vocabulary to be the waving of a flare;”Change Of Tone” is really rather good and most certainly not for sleeping on.
