Threaded Habitat on LP

Beacon Sound and Jacktone Records announce a limited-edition joint vinyl release by Hugo RA Paris entitled Threaded Habitat. The new LP from Paris follows two of Jacktone's most popular releases: Mystique Youth (2015) and Horizons Beneath The Surface (2016), which appeared under his alias, Lavender. The transition to the Hugo RA Paris moniker with this album marks a more personal shift in approach. Threaded Habitat combines ambient textures and techno rhythms to reflect tension between humanity and nature - particularly the cyclical nature of collapse and renewal. It also marks Beacon Sound's first collaborative release with Jacktone, a Detroit and Berlin-based label co-owned by Darren Cutlip and Doc Sleep, specializing in techno, house, ambient, and experimental electronics. Paris resides in Portland and developed the flagship modular product for leading Eurorack manufacturer 4MS: the SWN. The album's closing track was entirely composed on a SWN prototype and recorded in one take. In fact, much of his work is done in layers of single takes with minimal processing to preserve it's raw emotion and embrace minor imperfections. As an MIT-trained engineer and physicist, working with hardware - from modulars to guitar pedals and tape loops - is essential to his process of not only making but exploring sound. Threaded Habitat captures moments of claustrophobia and bliss in seven tracks and three accompanying videos directed by New Zealand artist Sam Hamilton. Visual art plays a central role in many of Paris's projects, which include intricate audio-visual performances and scores for full-length films like The Modern Jungle (La Selva Negra) and it's forthcoming follow-up. Handmade vinyl package. Lacquer cut and mastering by Dietrich Schoenemann. Includes download code; Edition of 300.
