    this is the newest thing he's released. god i cant wait for his new record. his music is just so emotionally devastating to me, his music borders on relentlessly ugly and joyfully beautiful at the same time. so many contradictions coming together in such a perfectly crafted way. he is immensely talented behind the boards, he's had a huge influence on me ever since i heard yeezus and &&&&&. this song tho...just wow

    and here's a stand out from mutant



    so you get the picture of what he sounds like. disjointed club music thats been taken through the ringer until all that remains is the memory of something that's beautiful

    grey hairs, get out of me zoots! Prestigious

    saw Mutant at the record store and I don't think I've ever seen an album cover where I felt "I don't know what this is but I need it" as much as this lol. This record is pretty amazing though, every convention of electronic music sort of goes out the window haha
