Distal Preps New EP for Tectonic; Preview It Now
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Over the past three years, Atlanta-based producer Distal (real name Michael Rathbun) has proven to be a ceaselessly prolific producer, with a littany of quality releases under his belt for labels like Well Rounded, Grizzly, Seclusiasis, Fortified Audio, and his own Embassay imprint. Now, the seemingly tireless artist has announced plans to return to Pinch's Tectonic imprint for a forthcoming EP. The Shadow Egg will present four new productions from Distal which continue to refit disparate dance music elements into powerful, bass-heavy hybrids. Furthermore, we're told that the EP's lead track will also be featured on Rathbun's forthcoming sophomore full-length when it appears in January of 2014, though no further details have been shared at this point. In the meantime, the artwork and tracklist for The Shadow Egg EP (due on September 23) are included below, along with previews of two of its tracks.
