The ten-track LP is out on the Chicago label later this month.
It's the first album to come from Steve Mizek's label as well as Hippie Priest, the project of 21-year-old Champaign, Illinois producer Will Justice. The ten-track album, which will be released on digital and cassette formats, treads through ambient, dance and IDM-leaning territory.
Argot says "Into The Gangway," written in pentatonic scale, sounds like "Philip Glass meets Mr. Fingers." For his part, Justice says "Gaia Variants is about finding the right sounds to suit a mood and expanding on that." Thus far in 2016, Argot has released EPs from Amir Alexander, New York producer Policy and Atlanta's Stefan Ringer, carrying out the label's mission statement to "promote, showcase, and support American electronic music."
