COM TRUISE

Com Truise is one of the many personas of producer and designer Seth Haley, born and raised in upstate New York and operating out of a 12'-overrun apartment in Princeton, New Jersey. An admitted synth obsessive, Com Truise is the maker of an experimental and bottom heavy style he calls "mid-fi synth-wave, slow-motion funk".

 

Haley's been making music on the side for roughly a decade—going through pseudonyms like toothbrushes (Sarin Sunday, SYSTM, Airliner)—first as a DJ, and currently, as an excavator of softer, window-fogging synth-wave.

 

While subliminally informed by both parental record collections and hints of faded electronics product design, Haley's Com Truise project isn't just nostalgia capitalization. There are fragments (read:
DNA strands) of Joy Division, New Order, and the Cocteau Twins, but it's like you're hearing them through the motherboard of a waterlogged Xbox—demented and modern. He's got a way of making familiar things sound beautifully hand-smeared.

 

The first Com Truise release was the Cyanide Sisters EP—distributed for free on the AMdiscs label—where mellow stone-outs like "Sundriped" and "Slow Peels" sat next to harder IDM bangers ("BASF Ace" and "IWYWAW") and bumpy alt-funk trips ("Norkuy" and "Komputer"). After that came a single "Pyragony/Trypyra," and a series of eclectic podcast mixes titled "Komputer Cast." Now comfortably situated amidst the Ghostly roster, he's prepping his next warped pillage, and hopefully not changing that name again.

ADULT.

Don't call it a comeback, because ADULT. haven't been away. It's been a while since the world heard any recordings from Detroit electropunk pioneers Adam Lee Miller and Nicola Kuperus, it's true, but that's because the restlessly creative duo have been busy with other projects: a film trilogy, a soundtrack and an epic home renovation.

 

"At the end of 2007," explains Miller, "music was everything, and that didn't satisfy our multi-disciplinary nature." It's easy to see why Miller and Kuperus decided to explore other aspects of their art, because their work has always pushed boundaries boundaries between genres, boundaries between disciplines, and boundaries between media. They've been married for 14 years, and artistic collaborators for longer than that. As well as music, their work encompasses photography, painting, a record label and, most notably of late, film.

 

Since the world last heard an ADULT. record 2008's Let's Feel Bad Together EP the duo have been exploring the audio/visual aspect of their work, creating a 113-minute trilogy of horror films called the Three Grace(s) triptych. The films were completed in late 2010, screened at the Distrital Film Festival in Mexico City and the CIMM Festival in Chicago, and the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Anthology Film Archives (they also found time to oversee a 17-month renovation on a 3,000 square foot historic commercial property in Detroit, following up the similar renovation they did on their own home in the mid-'00s).

 

It's notable that the duo's interest in audiovisual work grew out of the evolving visual aspect of ADULT. They collaborated on several music videos, which led them to experimenting with short films and 2012 sees them come full circle back to the studio: they have a double A-side single of cover versions due out November 6th and more new material in the pipeline. Still, Miller's keen to note that this isn't the only music they've been making. "We've always been recording music," he says. "Our films have original soundtracks from start to finish: that's a total of 1 hour and 51 minutes of music for the three films we have made in the last four years. And these soundtracks are recorded, they are just not released yet!"

 

At the same time, though, he's happy to be back to focusing on putting out records as he explains, "What brought us back to music releases was the simple fact that we finally got our visual side and our audible sides balanced again." And with everything in equilibrium again, we'll be hearing a lot more of ADULT. in the near future.

SHIGETO

Artists take on pseudonyms for a multitude of reasons, but in Zach Saginaw's case, those reasons run deeper than most. Zach records under the name Shigeto. It's his middle name; it's also his grandfather's name, a tribute to the Japanese branch of Zach's family tree. Shigeto also means "to grow bigger"—appropriate, given Zach's premature birth-weight of less than a pound. Today, Shigeto stands for Zach's vividly beautiful electronic music. Beat-driven but given to richly textured sound design, rhythmically fractured but melodically sumptuous, Shigeto's music is a bridge between the past and present, bringing the artist face to face with a creative legacy that spans decades.

 

Zach was brought up on a steady diet of Michigan-bred music, as his father spoon-fed him old Motown and jazz records by the crateload. Zach picked up the drums at an early age, spending much of his childhood playing in the Detroit/Ann Arbor music scene. After nearly flunking out of high school—save for his music studies—Zach spent three years studying jazz at the New School in NYC and three more in London, where he began woodshedding, obsessed with learning electronic production. Soon enough, beats materialized, Zach moved to Brooklyn and took up the name Shigeto, and Zach's peers began to take notice.

 

Zach's body of work has grown over the last few years to the tune of several EPs on Moodgadget as Shigeto and with A Setting Sun,
a pair of EPs under the alias Frank Omura (another family-name reference), and remixes for Worst Friends, Praveen & Benoit, Tycho, Mux Mool, Charles Trees, A Setting Sun, Beautiful Bells, Shlohmo, and more. The Semi-Circle EP and What We Held Onto EP were his first releases with Ghostly International in the spring of 2010. These were followed quickly by the well-received full-length Full Circle and Full Circle Remixes in late 2010 and early 2011 respectively. These releases are nominally indebted to instrumental hip-hop but, like Zach, straddling many worlds at once. Cool shades of ambient music, stuttering early IDM, dubstep sub-bass, and jazz melodicism color Shigeto's palette, which he wields with a painterly attention to detail.

 

Zach continues to be prolific with the upcoming 2012 release, Lineage—a mini-LP of sorts that has a complex constellation of sounds and ideas that we have come to expect from the producer/drummer. However, his compositional focus and restraint grounds songs that are otherwise cosmically inclined. Never has he demonstrated such complete command of his material.

 

Shigeto was one of the first of a wave of young artists who grew up influenced by the label's early output. And again, names come into play. "Putting out these records on Ghostly isn't just 'getting signed,' for me," says Zach, "it's becoming part of a family, an influence that I've respected forever." Let's just say the feeling's mutual.

MUX MOOL

"I know it's electronic music," Brian Lindgren says, "but sometimes I feel like an old-timey traveling musician with an M-Audio Trigger Finger instead of a guitar." As Mux Mool, Lindgren has been criss-crossing the country by himself for years, collecting records, loops, and samples, and rocking parties in towns both large and boondock-small. Lindgren is a self-confessed nerd to the bone, an incurable doodler, a Star Trek: The Next Generation fan; he lives on energy drinks and barely sleeps, spending his days working on music and his nights absorbing Internet memes by the hard-drive load. Mux Mool's homespun electro hip-hop is the product of an introverted mind, an extroverted imagination, and a bottomless cultural appetite.

 

Lindgren's life in music began in Minnesota with a cheap toy sampling keyboard ("I remember being so fascinated by how much a sound changed when you dropped it down several octaves"). Flash forward a few years (and more than a few keyboards), and the teenage Lindgren began recreating his favorite sounds – Dilla's stutter-step beats, classic video-game music, abstract electronic noise – using software and digital effects, glazing them with tape hiss and vinyl static.

 

An early Mux Mool track, the slinky strut of "Lost and Found," was discovered by Moodgadget Records and released on their Rorschach Suite compilation, eventually finding its way onto iTunes' Best of 2006 Electronic list. A string of EPs, tracks, and remixes followed, including the song-a-day project Drum EP, the grimy talkbox anthem "Night Court" on the Ghostly International/[Adult Swim] comp Ghostly Swim in 2007, and the Ritalin-fueled "Ballad of Gloria Featherbottom" on 2009's Moodgadget-curated Nocturnal Suite on Ghostly. Mux Mool's 2010 full-length debut, SKULLTASTE, is the culmination of years of toil and experimentation, gathering Lindgren's myriad talents and obsessions into one gloriously sprawling document.

 

As for where he got that name, Lindgren offers up an oddly telling story: he was dubbed Mux Mool by a band he admired, after he posted a blog on MySpace soliciting fans to submit names for his project. "Mux is short for 'multiplexing,' which is the streaming of many types of information through one channel," he explains, "and Chac-Mool is an ancient Meso-American statue of a reclining man." A technologically complex breed of synthesis and a timeless piece of indigenous art. Sounds about right.

DAUWD

Dauwd creates music with complexity most contemporary producers shy away from. Found sounds are thickly laden over multi-timbred synths. Vocal and instrumental stabs punctuate organic and evolving passages guided always by driving percussion and immaculate low-end production. His productions are full and intricate with a wealth of sounds building warm atmospheres that are unusual within dance music.

 

Early releases gained support from some of musics most important names. Benji B, Gilles Peterson, and Jamie XX were early champions, Ikopol was released as part of Adult Swims {UNCLASSIFIED} compilation alongside tracks from Burial, Kode9 and Untold.

 

Having toured extensively as a DJ, headlining club shows all around the UK and Europe, Dauwd has also won over the likes of Nick Hppner (OstGut Ton) and Kompakt label boss Michael Mayer who included Ikopol on his mix for Faze Magazine.

 

New productions move away from the UK sound, drawing on house and techno and expressing a long-standing love of these genres. Clearly the dance floor has permeated into the studio.

HEATHERED PEARLS

Heathered Pearls is the alias of Polish-born Jakub Alexander, music curator of the IS050 Blog, and founder of Moodgadget Records. Jakub has been DJing over a decade sharing residencies early on with globally recognized DJs Matthew Dear and Ryan Elliott in Ann Arbor, MI then moved on to Brooklyn to play along side slow motion disco duo Worst Friends.

 

Jakub is known to share that crowd-pleasing hypnotic end of rhythmic day time disco, synth induced melodic electronic and swell filled post rock but always comes back to disco.

 

The Heathered Pearls project isn't only a DJ alias; in 2011, Ghostly International's Ghostly Music Service released Jakub's debut LP Polite Isle, which included 3 EP's done in 2011 along with a couple of singles combined into one release.

 

In recent years he's played at the MoMA in Manhattan, held an exciting weekly at Brooklyn Bowl called "Soon To Be Innocent Fun" and has shared the bill with many musicians at The Glasslands and Cameo Gallery.
