Releases

“Decline Vol. 2” is the second installment in a series of ambient focused releases by Entrancer.

This series is primarily concerned with evolving textures and the emotional fragments found within them. Buried between these textures are meditations on the systems of oppression steering our world into chaos and decline. Ambient protest music.

Decline Vol. 2 features several compositions originally created for the “Human | Nature” exhibit at the Denver Botanic Gardens. It also includes a segment form “Eco-Simulation” an audio/visual installation for NEST at RedLine Contemporary Art Center.

Recorded and composed in the Spring of 2019 using a Serge Modular Synthesizer, Sidrax + Cocoquantus, Mutable Instruments Eurorack System, Monome Norns, and Roland SH-101.

C51 via Obsolete Future - Decline Vol. 1 [OF017]

Process is a collection of fractured concepts, single takes and live recording's spanning 2016-2018 (winter).

Originally aimless and destined for my archive, I decided to form them together as an attempt toward releasing my stress and grief, to find strength through creation. Catharsis synthesized through various modular systems + Roland x0x machines, kludged together into mixtape form. Inspired by Colin Ward’s endless energy http://crfw.art.

Produced & Mixed by Ryan McRyhew: Denver, CO | Mastered by David Chaim Cohen: Xexify Studios

Arcology follows in the free-form footwork of Thug Entrancer's debut album Death After Life.

A narrative of an imagined alien colony existing between the fabric of known / unknown worlds, Arcology explores high tech / low life society, mechanical structures, and data-driven humanity built for clubs and alien chambers.

Death After Life, Thug Entrancer’s debut for Software Recording Co. is a deliberately realized collection of dance experimentation and hybridized electronic music with narrow stylistic precedents.

Death After Life is comprised of eight chapters drawn from the album title, each numbered I through VIII. These portions underscore a pitch-dark motif thread throughout the album’s fifty minutes. “Death After Life I” is whittled and icy – long echoed claps and panned sawtooth shapes swelter around the skittering percussive elements over the four-and-half-minutes of unsettled, environmental shifting.
