Dystopian electronic project Detraction has a new album out. This one fascinatingly introduces pop sensibilities through trip hop beats that weave in and out of the experimental, dense soundscapes. As a concept the whole thing feels like one is retrieving fond moments out of distorted dreams. The final track drones on as if the dreams are becoming more vivid until ultimately they wither away. Detraction juxtaposes joy and dysphoria in a poignant way.

I’m a day late in posting this, but ‘as above/so below’ done!!
This is the most beautiful, and coherent compilation I’ve ever produced.
Heavily atmospheric and borderline spiritual, this material is a 12 month process of congruent experiments. ‘as above/so below’ is a study of signal delay/decay and longevity within time and signature.

“When you sit back and realize what year it really is,
and how many birthdays you’ve had,
and the Earth is just a rock in delicate balance,
within the void of outer-space.
You might just become aware that Life is an exercise
in knowing, loving and dishing-out compassion
to all fellow Earthlings, and those not of this Earth.
Then Life becomes a journey to absolute Warmth and Giving.”

If you look into the abyss, and it looks back at you, you must realize, it’s

If the Abyss ever looks back at you, please realize.

My emotions now seem to flow asymmetric opposed to congruent.
It’s like I’m constantly editing live music on the fly, yet the notes are thoughts and feelings.
I’d give anything to record it, and play it back sometime.
