  • Contemporary synthetic soundscapes

    Made in collaboration with XL Recordings’ in-house producer-turned-composer Alex Epton (FKA Twigs, Björk, Arca), these post-industrial soundscapes offer a deep dive into the raw, chaotic nature of feedback. Discover an inspiring spectrum of disorienting sounds that create both dramatic impact and eerie beauty — sweeping synths, pulsing bass drones, multilayered sound design textures and distorted percussive elements which evolve, unravel or detune as you play, instantly sparking new ideas.

    The New York-based engineer, producer & remixer is a highly skilled beat-maker and sound sculptor, whose hybrid sound is exemplified in his acclaimed soundtrack, created with Lucinda Chua, for documentary film 3OHA, out now on SA Recordings. Inspired by the experimental techniques of musique concrète, Entropy was made from a unique combination of modular synthesis, granular synthesis, found sounds fed through self-built gear and pedals, and IR reverbs.

    When we have to struggle with a set of limitations or reckon with a chaotic force, it leads us to engage our creativity in a more intense way.

    I wanted to create a sound environment that was elusive – that slips away when you try to examine it – almost like being in a fog.
