Stephon Alexander & Rioux "Tessellation"

Earlier this month, Brooklyn producer Rioux and Trinidadian astrophysicist/sax player (quite the combination) Stephon Alexander worked together to create Here Comes Now, a "psychedelic dance record [that] explores the relationship between science—namely the creation of the universe—and electronic music." Pulled from the record is "Tessellation," a delicate composition which navigates celestial bell pads with a skittering, off-kilter beat. From there, Alexander takes the lead, unraveling patient spells of solo saxophone, which come bathed in reverb and occasionally pushed through layers of delay, all of which helps the reeded instrument sit seamlessly in the mix. Out now via the Connect label, Rioux's and Alexander's full collaborative album can be streamed after the jump.
