Two years ago, Rudi Zygadlo released his first album on Planet Mu, on which, according to the label, the Scot anticipated the now-established trend of mixing dubstep production with pop song-writing. Now, the producer has his second full-length ready, “Tragicomedies”. As an appetiser, Mike Paradinas' label will release the single “Melpomene” on 2nd July. The title track is a melodramatic ballad featuring luxurious acoustic instrumentation and gassy production. On B-side “Arrows”, Zygadlo's vocals are driven by intricate rhythms and synthesised flashes of plastic textures. The digital version of the release will include a remix of the title track by Paradinas himself, using his µ-Ziq alias. Listen to the outtakes here.
