Fred Welton Warmsley III, the dynamic, multi-aliased producer from Northern California, has signed to Kranky Records and announced Tahoe, his second full-length Dedekind Cut album. His 2016 debut as Dedekind Cut, $uccessor, garnered much acclaim from this humble site and many other critical outlets, as did his series of 2017 EPs, including The Expanding Domain with Elysia Crampton, Zach Hill, and Prurient. This new collection of tracks is said to evoke the mountains lakes and sweeping vistas of the town Warmsley calls home, a nod to the wild American West, like the saddle-bagged cover of $uccessor.

Warmsley — who has previously produced for Mick Jenkins, Joey Bada$$, and the Pro Era, and has worked with artists such as Embaci, serpentwithfeet, and Chino Amobi — will be releasing Tahoe February 23, 2018. The album is described by Warmsley as a “time peace,” sifting through “the past, the present, future, and fantasy.” Kranky seems like a fitting home for such a fantasy.
