Ex-Terrestrial evokes Autechre, Aphex Twin and Boards of Canada on his debut LP, ‘Gamma Infolded’. Hear the sizzling, technicolour electro cut, ‘Skip Ad’, now
Canadian producer Ex-Terrestrial will release his debut LP, ‘Gamma Infolded’, this Friday 15th November.
Written and recorded in Toronto and Montreal between 2017-2018, the 11-track collection is ethereal and frosty, evoking the likes of Boards of Canada, Autechre and Aphex Twin with its sizzling, glitchy rhythms and hazy, evocative melodies.
The album is set for release via the artist’s own NAFF label, which he co-runs with frequent collaborator, Priori. Styles range from dreamlike downtempo – one track playfully nods to its influences with the title ‘Bored of Canada’ – to more febrile, busy electro and experimental techno. It makes for a gripping listen, and a more than appropriate companion for the encroaching winter cold.
‘Skip Ad’ is one of the album’s more energised cuts, with a nostalgic, technicolour melody and crackling beat. Check it out below.
