Jimy SeiTang of Psychic Ills and Rhyton has embarked upon a sonic odyssey across the vast, threatening wastes of ElectronicMusicLand. To reach these distant shores, SeiTang must travel past the Skrillexian monsters of dubstep, the famed sirens of sexy deep house, and shitty dance remixes of already shitty LMFAO songs. And his vehicle for this mission is a noble steed — er, musical project — called Stygian Stride.
On SeiTang’s venture into minimal electronica, he eschewed the laptop route, instead choosing to go the “vintage, analog” route to give it that special robot machine soul. Recorded by Black Dirt Studio’s Jason Meagher (Blues Control, D. Charles Speer, Jack Rose, Expo ’70) and mastered in Berlin at CGB ad Dubplates & Mastering, Stygian Stride’s self-titled debut album springs from the loins of Thrill Jockey on March 19. (Sorry, that was weird.) The release will only be available in limited quantities on both CD and LP.
