The Cyclist – Visions from Leaving Records on Vimeo.

This is the first video from the Leaving Records/Stones Throw Dual Form compilation that I profiled in the LA Weekly last week, along with a look at label bossman, Matthewdavid. “Visions” might be my favorite track on the record, partially because it reminds me of Pantha Du Prince’s Black Noise, partially because I am a sucker for a good house groove. Years of drug abuse have wired my brain this way. Take notes, college kids. One day your circuitry will be re-routed and you will find yourself praying to Berghain four times a day, in 4/4 time.

According to The Cyclist, “this project of mine, is an attempt to get to a time in electronic music, where everything sounds warmer, like with the more techno-ey tunes by throbbing gristle maybe a bit like what Geogaddi by Boards of Canada got across,but with a whole other meaning with a more danceable edge of new order. This needed to be done and needs to be done more. let’s call it Tape Throb for now.”

Fair enough. More “Tape Throb” at his Soundcloud below the jump. Probably safe for work. This Jonah Bromwich Dual Form review at Pitchfork is also recommended.
