Romanian-born, Berlin-based producer/DJ and recent XLR8R podcast contributor Cosmin TRG dropped his sophomore album for Modeselektor's 50Weapons imprint late last week, and today has made the record available to stream in full. The follow-up to his 2011 debut full-length Simulat, Gordian finds the former post-dubstep-aligned producer pushing his work further towards the house and techno sounds of his adopted city. Touted as an exploration of today's big issues—"the necessity of 'making it,' fear of failure [and] fear of not being happy," according to the record's accompanying press release—the album eases listeners into its folds with crisp, shuffling drums, sleek synth-work, and plenty of melancholy atmosphere. Gordian can be streamed in full via the player below.
