First Listen : ACT! – Para (Halocline Trance)

Toronto-based musician David Psutka is back with a full-length album on his Halocline Trance imprint. More familiarly known as Egyptrixx, the producer is best known for his cavernous grime-infused techno on Night Slugs, but has also released music as Ceramic TL and with Anna Mayberry as Anamai.

Universalist marks a shift in the producer’s focus; with this release he abandons the frameworks of club-focussed music, switching to the flexibility of experimental. The album retains much of Psutka’s signature metallic instrumentation, but with a more optimistic energy. It’s an exciting direction for this prolific producer, resembling the sound of current figures like Gábor Lázár and Lorenzo Senni.

Today we premiere ‘Para,’ which plays out like a hectic piano scale with tranced out keys, quickly descending into a clatter of psychedelic commotion.

Universalist is out on July 13th.
