On his fourth album as Egyptrixx, Toronto-based experimental producer David Psutka confronts the dichotomy of dance music. Serenity versus collision, he explains to The Fader, who further the assessment: "a stark and uncompromising reconfiguration of club music and non-musical elements... processed, despairing, ready to swallow us whole." Psutka goes on to cite the North Pacific Gyre—a large mass of garbage in the ocean—and its relationship to pathological human loyalty, as direct inspiration. Something to contemplate while adrift the oceanic and chaotic sound design of this wildly inventive release, out on his own label, Halocline Trance.
