Amsterdam native Olaf Stuut has been peddling gauzy electronica on labels such as Traum Schallplatten, Manual Music and Atomnation in recent years. He’ll return to the latter next month with his boldest statement to date in the form of new LP Run.
Citing influences as varied as Jimi Hendrix and Debussy, and collaborating with singer Marlon Penn on two tracks, Stuut fuses the frameworks of industrial, ambient and techno to build an album of impressive depth. An acute sense of detail permeates each of Run‘s eight tracks, which owe much of their inventiveness to Stuut’s omnivorous musical approach.
In preparation for release on June 10, wrap yourself in the delicate textures of ‘Thank You’, where Stuut contorts synthesisers into acoustic sounding instruments, full of twists and turns at every note.
