Thug Entrancer

Arcology


A narrative of an imagined alien colony existing between the fabric of known / unknown worlds, Thug Entrancer#s Arcology explores high tech / low life society, mechanical structures, and data-driven humanity in an evocative techno framework. Though Arcology was conceived in a similar improvisational womb as Ryan McRyhew#s debut, the new album moves subtly from free-form footworkouts of Death After Life with an expanded palette vibrating brightly with melodic deployment. Curaga and Exo-Memory triumph over established 303 / 808 interplay with uplifting melodies - ear-worms from outer space; Bronze pumps dub-tectonics within a minimalist reduction of Death After Life's modus operandi. Lighter than most of McRyhew#s output, album interludes Low-Life, VR-Urge and the finale, Xeno, beam satellite ballads through alien atmospheres. Ryan is a rare breed of producer+thinker who is able to hallucinate worlds beyond his music that recursively influence his sound. His understanding of science fiction's speculative potential combined with a virtuosic ability to program hardware synthesizers make him a techno fantasist of the highest order. - Dan Lopatin
