CGI005

CGI005, a split 12" EP by Lyman-Alpha Forest and Afterburner, is now available for direct order from CGI.  To place an order send an email to CGIrecordsATL [at] gmail [dot] com - it will be in shops internationally on April 10th, 2014.




CGI is proud to present the debut of 2 new duos who are experts at making their synths and sequencers sweat divine moisture. Lyman-Alpha Forest is a new collaborative project between producers Grey People (Proper Trax, Finale Sessions) and Talk (Deconstructure). As a duo they work to bring acid into new territories with their heavy, low-slung approach to producing melodic-and-spacious yet tight-and-focused slow-burning club-weapons. Whether or not this is due to a stroke of compositional genius or if it is simply a side effect of the high levels of sizzurp found in the tap water in their hometown of Nashville is irrelevant, but the effect is intoxicating all the same. 
Travel 7 hours up I-65 and you'll end up somewhere in Chicago where Afterburner spends long cold winter nights painting vivid synthesized tapestries as epic as the city's skyline. The duo of Nicholas Reed (Windbreaker) and Travis Thatcher (Voice Of Saturn) employ an aresnal of modular and analog gear to produce lushly cinematic tracks that chug along like classic Moroder productions while simultaneously evoking the rich melodicism of Kraftwerk. Whether you listen to them at home in the headphones or on the dancefloor in the club, these tracks will take you on a wild ride.
