New York-based artist Rioux is set to drop his eagerly awaited debut full-length album, Fragmenta, on October 16 via his own Human Pitch imprint.

Rioux will be no stranger to regular XLR8R readers, having been featured numerous times in our downloads section and across the site. Rioux's approaching album, however, will be the most personal and complete body of work we've had the pleasure of devouring from him, as he transmutes "the self into new form, reconciling its disparate pieces and rediscovering the whole."

Spread across 10 sprawling tracks, Fragmenta merges avant-garde pop with Rioux's cerebral sound design and beat-driven compositions.

Ahead of the October 16 release date, you can stream LP cut "Unfamiliar Cloud" via the player below, with the album available for preorder here.
