Matt Papich says he’s “employing the hegemony of delete.” As an artist who constructs and deconstructs looping, mercurial electronic music under the moniker Co La, Papich worked on his latest album Moody Coup in his kitchen at his home in Baltimore, where his personal life would intercede with his work. These moments, he said, were “the best interruptions.”
The interpolation between the real world and the digital world informs his first single from the album, “Melter’s Delight”. It’s a dramatic and spectral piece that layers ventricular percussion underneath synth patches that were once used to describe the future in 1983. Top it off with an old reggae sample, and it really is music to make you stagger. Check out the track below.
Moody Coup is out May 7th via Software Records.
