Published Apr 22, 2015The wonderfully weird universe of 1080p continues to expand as the Vancouver-based cassette label adds more releases to its collection. Up next is Clear Licorice, a new album from New Zealand producer Wywy Brix.
After working under the moniker Cartoon, the performer found a taste for outsider techno as Wywy Brix. Clear Licorice marks his first full-length endeavour as Wywy and comprises 10 compositions.
As 1080p's write-up explains, the album "uses emotional melodies and repetition to sit on feelings and move the body for a wonky, acid-y take on spirituality stoked on swinging rhythms, romantic vibes and jazz chords." Here, Wywy Brix utilizes "dance music as a vehicle for somatic/catharsis/release/healing."
Clear Licorice will arrive on May 19 via 1080p. The album can be pre-ordered here. Listen to a recent Wywy Brix mix below.
