LTO

Old Apparatus member LTO’s debut LP is a gripping mutation of trance, jungle and 90s IDM

Blurring the lines between the organic and machine-made – stream album cut ‘Ninth’.

Having dropped the No Pasa Nada EP last year (which featured a brilliant remix from Throwing Snow), Bristol-based producer and Old Apparatus collective member LTO is releasing his debut LP this Friday July 8.

The Number From Which All Things Come, which comes via Sullen Tone, sees LTO employ hardware, software, instruments and found sounds (including the Berlin subway, a trampoline, a traditional Celtic Bodhran, and the 2012 Olympics construction site). According to press materials the album “contains certain tracks that were started in the recent past whilst early sketches of others began a decade back, at points utilising ideas initially developed with Old Apparatus.”

Album track ‘Ninth’, which we’re hosting exclusively today, takes nebulous sounds and crashes them with the clatter of machine rhythms. A deftly crafted piece of bedroom listening that rewards total submission – stream it below.

The Number From Which All Things Come is out July 8 on digital and August 12 on vinly via Sullen Tone. Pre-order it here.
