Following the release of his debut LP, Human, earlier this year (and a contribution to our Artist Tips series), Max Cooper has unveiled a new collaborative project, Skew & Satirist, which will issue its first effort next month via the Killekill label. Combining the talents of Cooper and Berlin-based producer Gareth Williams (a.k.a. Raw Hedroom), Skew & Satirist's debut EP, Through the Compound Eye, is said to present three "twisted techno" tracks from the pair.
As the story goes, Cooper and Williams first met in Nottingham, where they eventually lived together for a number of years, helping each other learn the crafts of production and DJing along the way. Having long collaborated behind the scenes, the upcoming effort for Killekill marks Cooper's and William's first official release together, and is described as landing somewhere between "driving weirdo techno, warm melodic acid, and daring sound experiments." Skew & Satirist's Through the Compound Eye EP is set to see a vinyl release on September 8, with a digital release to arrive the following week. In the meantime, the record's tracklist has been included below.
