♫♪  Khotin - “Hello World”

Dylan Khotin-Foote has worked under various guises throughout the years, but most notably Happy Trendy and Kumon Plaza. Earlier this year, he began releasing music under his own name — specifically with the Vitebsk 12-inch on Normals Welcome (which Dylan runs) — and now he’s put out a full-length tape on Vancouver’s 1080p, entitled Hello World. The eight tracks here bring to mind a more dance-oriented version of E*vax’s Parking Lot Music, with elements of the bedroom pop of his previous projects paired with his more recent techno leanings. The tracks here are woozy bits of lo-fi, low-key house, and the tape format perfectly captures the dusty atmosphere that makes these tunes feel so captivating and engaging, even as you press play for the first time. Start your week off on a very smooth note by streaming the whole tape below and head over to the 1080p shop and pick up your copy of Hello World.
