Morgan Geist has revealed he will launch his new EP 'Megaprojects 1' via Environ Records late next month.
Set to drop on 23rd October, it's the first release by the NYC-based producer since 2008 — he's been kept busy by his chart-topping moniker Storm Queen and much-lauded house alias, The Galleria.
His new 'Megaprojects 1' EP will drop via his own imprint Environ Records, and draws inspiration from his late '90s releases with Dan Curtin's Metamorphic Recordings.
"Megaprojects are by definition large-scale, high-tech and cost billions of dollars, whereas this is a collection of low-tech tracks made with cheap little drum machines and rejected old synths, so I thought it was a good name. I composed and mixed to the best of my ability and with hope they'll feel more 'mega' than they actually are," said Giest, on the new project.
"And of course I've always felt inspired and fascinated by actual megaprojects: imposing, surreal engineering and architecture like giant hydroelectric dams, soaring bridges and strange-looking, exposed-concrete government buildings."
'Megaprojects 1' is out 23rd October.
