The likes of Julia Holter, Max D and Lafawndah have contributed to the LP.
Dust was recorded over two years, starting out at EMPAC (Experimental Media And Performing Arts Center) in Troy, New York, in January 2015. Hyperdub says the US artist "spent days alone in the cavernous space" of EMPAC, with Eli Keszler and Lafawndah later joining her there to contribute. Other collaborators on the album include Klein, Michael Salu, $hit And $hine's Craig Clouse, Julia Holter, Max D, Michael Beharie and Diamond Terrifier.
The result is a "breezy, broken songs, based on woody instrumentation, sub bass and restless, intricate electronics," according to Hyperdub, with vocals playing a prominent role. The album's opener is an adaptation of "Servidão de Passagem" by Brazilian poet Haroldo De Campos.
Dust is Laurel Halo's third solo LP. Her previous two albums, 2012's Quarantine and 2013's Chance Of Rain, also came out on Kode9's label. In 2015 she released an EP on Honest Jon's Records titled In Situ.
Listen to lead track "Jelly," which features vocals by Klein and Lafawndah.
