|2.||"Collectively" (TRP remix) (4:28)|
There's something particularly admirable about Lobster Theremin's often-stated desire to eschew tried-and-tested producers in favour of newcomers and lesser-known studio buffs. Here, they offer a label debut to William 'Royer' Thurman, whose 2014 releases on Tasteful Nudes and Material Image were all quietly impressive. Here, he escorts us on a trip into the deep depths of his musical imagination, where drifting chords, barely audible vocal samples and dusty melodic motifs rub shoulders with crackling drum machine grooves and blazed, locked-in rhythms. There's much to enjoy throughout, from the horizontal textures and rolling grooves of "Facts", to the minor key techno wonkiness of "Collectively". TRP remixes that track, delivering a heavier, more raw sounding interpretation.
