Chicago Skyway

Fall Down

Machining Dreams
The latest artist to release on Hakim Murphy’s label is Sean Hernandez aka Chicago Skyway. While the deep and jazzy 'Praying Mantis' and the snare-led title track take inspiration from well-documented Chicago tropes, the more interesting tracks play more loosely with rules and formulas. Both 'Ride' and 'Leaf' are tracky, analogue workouts in the Relief tradition, while 'Mosquito' sounds like an amalgamation of UK techno noisenik Neil Landstrumm's '90s work and DJ Rush’s distorted drums, with an air raid siren swooping in and adding to the unfolding drama.
