“Night Slugs Allstars Vol. 1”, the first compilation album released on the label run by James Conolly (a.k.a. L-Vis 1990 ) and Alex Sushon (a.k.a. Bok Bok) is due out on 29th November. After this first and panoramic view, Night Slugs is already focused on 2011, a year that promises to be full on. A few of the releases for next year include debut albums by Jam City, L-Vis 1990 and by the protagonist of this article, the Canadian David Psutka, a.k.a. Egyptrixx.
Egyptrixx’s debut album is the result of three work-intensive summer months. Those who have listened to it say it could become an equivalent to “Music Has The Right To Children” (Warp/Skank, 1998) or “Untrue” (Hyperdub, 2007) for 2011. Conjectures aside, we know the album, entitled “Bible Eyes”, gathers ten tense, hybrid songs, a mixture inspired by minimal techno, dubstep, UK bass, IDM calligraphy and experimental electronic pop, always in search of an unstable balance between melody and dissonance, between an enthusiastic invitation to rapture and celebration and an intimate, solipsist humour.
“Bible Eyes” will hit retailers on February 9th via Night Slugs.
