L.I.E.S. label boss Ron Morelli to re-release new album on other label boss Dominick Fernow's label

In 2018, the lines between “master music producer” and “successful label boss” continue to blur. This is a world in which Drake produces an HBO series and Mary J. Blige is nominated for an Oscar, so of course we expect all our revered artists to dabble in the “corporate,” the “business-artistic,” the “hustle,” whathaveyou. Well, fine; hustle away friends! As long as it means we get more releases from folks like Ron Morelli (and it DOES, as you’re finding out now).

As head of Long Island Electrical Systems (L.I.E.S.), Morelli has carved out a scene for the most pulverizing, concrete technopunk on the outside. Now, he’s taking on the good ol’ “artist” role once again to re-release his new record once again via Hospital Productions, the label run by fellow noise-music-bossman Dominick Fernow (a.k.a. Prurient, Vatican Shadow). Originally released in a limited run earlier this year, DISAPPEARER arrives 2LP and cassette September 21, and you can hear the first track below.

DISAPPEARER is Morelli’s third record for Fernow’s label. (It brings my heart joy to picture these two throwing back some cold ones and showing each other Instagram memes on a couch somewhere.) It is also his first full-length since 2015’s A Gathering Together. Too busy with the ol’ label business, eh Ron?

Nah, I can’t blame him, especially with a single this damn good. Fans of the “L.I.E.S. sound” will absolutely find heart-thumping solace in this high-BPM stunner. Once you listen, you’ll definitely wanna go pre-order the record now. Then you can catch a live set from Morelli himself when he appears at Hospital Fest on December 8 in NYC. Oh, so they’re putting on festivals now? These savvy dudes just can’t be stopped!
