Euphonium the Album


Nearly ten years into his career, Detroit producer and DJ Patrice Scott released his first album, fifty-four minutes of his particular brand of thick, murky, futuristic deep house and techno. Scott’s music has moved far from house’s disco/new wave/boogie roots, and this album is made of detailed sound design, analogue-sounding bleeps and drones, cinematic backdrops that conjure up all kinds of hard-to-define moods, and controlled, tight, efficient drum tracks. There are no vocals and the timbres are all synthetic with no signs of any ‘real’ instruments; instead this is the music of electricity and digital 1s and 0s, machines and computer programs pulled into expressing mood and creating groove.
