Hrdvsion "I Can't Exist"
Canadian-born Hrdvsion (a.k.a. Nathan Jonson, who now resides in Berlin) has always been a bit of an oddball producer, but his new I Can't Exist EP finds him applying his musical eccentricities to a more straight-ahead techno template. Clocking in at nearly 10 minutes, the record's title track features a stripped-down beat, rubbery synth notes, and a simple bassline, all of which provide a sturdy framework for the song's warped and pitch-shifted vocals. It's a trippy journey, albeit one worth taking whether your losing it on a crowded dancefloor or weirding out alone in the privacy of your own home. (via Altered Zones)
