Early next month, Colombian-born, Vancouver-based Daniel Rincon (a.k.a. NAP) will release his debut album, Uncharted, via 1080p.
The nine-track outing finds Rincon exploring "proto IDM and rhizomatic house and techno" with the same fervour and warm touch he applied to his previous guitar-based noise projects. With the production help of Jesse Creed (The Passenger) and Sophie Sweetland (D. Tiffany), Uncharted playfully traverses through a range of left-field electronic spaces, taking in lo-fi house, slowed-down machine-like funk, and rhythmic ambient explorations. With his weapons of choice being the cheapest guitar pedals, grooveboxes, and synths he could find, Rincon has crafted a hazy, smoke-filled sonic space that invites continued exploration.
