Boonlorm "Terrarium II"
Brooklyn-based producer Skooby Laposky has been DJing under the Pocketknife moniker for years, remixing the likes of Lykke Li and Adele while also running his own fledgling label, Wilde Calm. For his recent Boonlorm project, Laposky built a skeletal house record by inserting objects into a grand piano à la John Cage and capturing the results. "Terrarium II"—taken from his remastered String Figures LP, which will see a collaborative re-release via Japanese label Snow Dog and Laposky's label tomorrow—blends the artist's dissonant piano treatments with unabashed handclaps and cowbell rhythms, crafting an innovative hybrid between intellectual exercise and DJ utility.
