The Berlin label's laptop collective will release its first full-length in October.
Made up of Highgrade Records bosses Tom Clark and Todd Bodine, plus label staples Philip Bader, Daniel Dreier and Dale, Highrade Disharmonic Orchestra is a live collective that's all about improvisation: in the studio and onstage, the artists sync up their five laptops with a few synths and drum machines and jam, coming up with arrangements on the fly. The project debuted last year (with a slightly different lineup) at Highrade's 10th anniversary party at Watergate, and put out an EP called Second Wind earlier this year. Multilayer features nine new productions from the group, plus album edits of their three previously released tracks. The album will be the 100th record on the Berlin-based label.
