Matthew Dear:: Black City

Another one of the year’s best releases comes by way of Matthew Dear and his new album, Black City. Dear is known for taking his electronic works to wide and varied multi-layered expanses resulting in a grandiose dance of thick beat and sonics. Black City is no exception and a wonderfully consuming record thats as heady in a hip grooving way as it cavernous and singular. It opens with a hovering note and beat on the track “Honey,” an inauguration of sorts before submerging into the vibrant murk. Elsewhere the journey is in full depth traversing an uncharted distance between the mechanized and more organic as seen on hallmarks like “You Put A Spell On Me.” Its a trip and I like it.

“Little People (Black City)”
