The album, titled Departures, is, as the name suggests, a slight departure from past work, containing 13 awe-inspiring beat cuts that map his immersive sound world. Whereas previous work could be seen as being more direct, many of the tracks on Departures explore introspective, alien-like atmospheres and textures, intricate percussive work, and affecting, hallucinogenic melodies. Lyricist Looms features on two of the album cuts with prose, whilst Portland-producer Yung Bae lends a hand to "Entheogen."
In support of the release, Alpha Pup has offered up album cut "Into The Deep" as today's XLR8R download. Beginning with thick, engulfing textures, the track slowly unfolds into a morphing waves full of alien-like synth flourishes and muffled beats.
