Podcast 144: Pictureplane—Fusion of the Masculine and Feminine Energy Mix
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Pictureplane (a.k.a. Travis Egedy) isn't exactly easy to pin down. The Denver-based artist has been lumped in with the chillwave crowd, even though his
debut latest album, Dark Rift, often sounded more like a rough-around-the-edges take on '80s dance pop, early '90s rave, and modern UK bass music. On this Fusion of the Masculine and Feminine Energy mix, Egedy mines familiar territory, although he manages to expand his reach to also include gabber techno, digital hardcore, hip-hop, and fuzzed-out R&B. Combining dancefloor nostalgia with a DIY punk ethos, not to mention an affinity for distorted synths, Egedy has created more of a mixtape than a 'proper' DJ mix, which might lead some to scoff at the lack of technical prowess on display here. But as far as we're concerned, when it comes to Pictureplane, precision is beside the point. His new EP, True Ruin Light Body, drops later this month.
