The new imprint will serve as a platform for the Seattle producer's own work, with the first EP out next month.
Pezzner has been a fixture of the Seattle house and techno scene since the mid-2000s, making a name for himself with an especially melodic, sometimes prog-inspired approach. He's had records on Crosstown Rebels, Visionquest and Systematic, as well as a long-running relationship with Freerange, but Hunt & Gather sees him striking on his own for a "DIY" endeavour. Pezzner says that the label is primarily reserved for his own tracks. The first 12-inch is a two-tracker due out on August 17th, and the A-side "Protection"—which you can stream below—is reportedly inspired by modern classical acts like Philip Glass and John Cage.
Hunt & Gather will release Protection on August 17th, 2015.
