There’s very little known about the record, other than that it’s largely sourced from Steinbrick’s spontaneously recorded sketches for film projects, which the pair then refracted “into a dynamic textural collage” through Brin’s chain of sample contortion into a dynamic textural collage. We’re told that “dub aesthetics stretch to the outer realms,” and that “from the furthest reaches of the dancefloor to barely sentient internal haze, moods of unease and ecstasy oscillate feverishly.”
Brin is the solo project of Portland, Oregon-based percussionist and sound artist Colin Blanton, a regular on Matthewdavid‘s Leaving Records. Earlier this year, Steinbrick released an album of woozy, spiritual jazz spiritual jazz with Sam Gendel, called Mouthfeel / Serene.
