Playful, dubbed-out techno gone wrong is the approach taken on Tristan Arp's second collection of twisted rhythms for Human Pitch, Plexi. The EP follows his May debut, Pipeline, the title track from which received an explosive rework from Machine Woman. You can listen to the first offering from the EP, the molten “Double Exposure,” via DJ Mag below. Plexi will be released October 26, 2018 in digital format, featuring cover art by Clément Mancini.
Pointillist micro-percussion and asymmetrical rhythms propelled the debut offering of biomorphic techno from New York producer Tristan Arp in May. Now reinterpreted by Machine Woman, "Pipeline" explores new dynamic zones featuring whispered spoken word from the Russian producer.
Driven by snaking, syncopated rhythms, the rework brings the original into murkier territory before taking a series of explosive turns. A fluid, sprawling arrangement builds on the track's metallic, underwater sound palette, challenging dancefloor norms.
Swerving between elastic funk and playful sound design, New York producer Tristan Arp shares his debut collection of biomorphic techno with Pipeline. Shining with the sprightly whimsy of science fiction, Pipeline emphasizes spontaneity and intuition, each track an improvisational one-take performance.

Pipeline is the first in a series of dance EPs to be shared by Tristan Arp throughout the year and will be available in digital format on May 18th, 2018 via Human Pitch.
We're excited to share news of our first release of 2018, a potent collection of tracks from Accra, Ghana-based producer GALTFaculty. After a few years of corresponding with GALT over many late-night and early-morning messages, combing and parsing through recordings he's gathered over the years, we arrived at E B O W, an EP of undulating and warped dancefloor and hip-hop excursions and GALT's first official release under the GALTFaculty moniker.
We hope you enjoy the first offering from E B O W, "Owned It"—Detroit House reinterpreted and imbued with the electrifying atmosphere of Ghana.
GALTFaculty’s E B O W is out on digital format via Human Pitch on March 16, 2018.
We're psyched to share Vol. 7 of our Resonant Frequencies series, a soaring mix by Greece’s own Jay Glass Dubs. We’ve been massive fans of Dimitris’ music ever since we discovered his album New Teeth For An Old Country a couple years ago on one of our favorite labels, Bokeh Versions (they can do no wrong!). We’d never heard anyone flip dub on its head the way Dimitris does. His recent Bokeh Versions collab EP with Leslie Winer, YMFEES, is Jay Glass Dubs at his most extraterrestrial. A must listen :)
Read our Q&A with Jay Glass Dubs for more on his sampling process and his introduction to dub music.
