The newest signee to Flying Lotus’s Brainfeeder imprint is the remarkable and wildly imaginative 18 year old producer Seamus Malliagh (a.k.a. Iglooghost). Born in Ireland and based somewhere in the UK, Malliagh has previously released music via Error Broadcast, and has just put out his track “Saturn Rice” on Fly High Society’s Spacebus Vol. 1, a track that we featured in our download section just last week (download link below). Now, this youngblood is set to join the ranks of Brainfeeder, a label which has represented some of electronic music’s heaviest hitters like Lapalux, Martyn, Teebs, MONO/POLY, Ras_G, and Mr. Oizo.
Set to drop on October 30, his upcoming EP, Chinese Nü Yr, is the tale of a “gelatinous worm-shaped creature,” which ties into the distinct, pink aesthetic that he is so fond of using. You can find out about the story behind this EP by reading Malliagh’s words below, followed by a link to XLR8R's free download of Iglooghost's "Saturn Rice."
In the words of Iglooghost:
“The EP is a story about a gelatinous worm-shaped creature who wears a witch hat called xiāngjiāo. He/she is really sad because his/her existence consists of infinitely being blasted through endless wormholes into different worlds that don’t make any sense – full of floating fruit and pink mist. He/she has a voice played by my little sister but sometimes my dad. He/she is perennially sad and terrified because it doesn't make any sense why he/she was randomly born into this existence, but he/she is also shit scared because being shot at light speed through wormholes is probably f**king terrifying.”
