Kangding Ray – “Pruitt Igoe” – [Raster-Noton]
aka David Letellier who was born in France and started as guitarist and drummer before venturing into electronic music. He currently resides in Berlin aka the electronic music capitol.
Studied architecture, which can be hard as this is very architectural in nature with the complex layers and forms. Deep sonic dark beats, cavernous rhythms, imposing melodies. This reminds me of Monolake, (and I might even like it a tiny bit more). Has collaborated with Alva Noto and Ben Frost on this release and earlier material is definitely much more minimal but I am hoping that these intense dark beats are what we can expect in the future.
