Further Records will release the deep house artist's first LP under his new alias.
Later this month, Oakland-based deep house producer AYBEE will don a new alias, o1o, for a mini-album on Further Records.
Entitled Futurespective, the record shares much in common with Ancient Tones, AYBEE's last album for Further: it has the same spacey feel as the bulk of his productions, but trades the 4/4 pulse for syncopated, hip-hop-inspired rhythms. All seven of the tracks are relatively concise, always clocking in below five minutes. The album will be released exclusively on vinyl, and much like Further's other 12-inch releases, comes packaged in a screen-printed sleeve.
Meanwhile, Further's cassette department is humming along steadily. Last month saw the release of two new full-lengths on tape: Celestial Acid, an album by Seattle-based artist Yard, and Books, a long broken-beat piece by Raica, label founder Chloe Harris's experimental project.
You can hear full streams of these and other releases on Further Records' Bandcamp page.
