Software will release the Kansas City producer's debut album in September.
Huerco S will release his debut album, Colonial Patterns, in September on Daniel Lopatin's Software Recording Co.
The Kansas City artist's lo-fi transmissions have so far seen release on labels like Wicked Bass, Future Times and Opal Tapes—he was also responsible for the first record on Anthony Naples' Proibito label, which was produced under the name Royal Crown Of Sweden. An RA review of his recent Apheleia's Theme EP said that Huerco S's "brand of soporific dub-house perfectly balances groove and dysfunction, clarity and concealment." A press release cites "the ancient Native American mound city of Cahokia" as an influence for Colonial Patterns, alongside the work of artists like William Basinski, Theo Parrish and Jon Hassell. Huerco will embark on a European DJ tour to promote the LP. Kicking off later this month and running through until August, it takes in dates in Berlin, London, Manchester and Paris among others.
