Description

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
