about

Tim Thornton brings the left-footed swagger from the uneven dancefloors of Cleveland to Baked, following up a dizzying array of Rocky-numbered cassette zones strewn across both his Suite 309 imprint as well as the ever-dazzling Hausu Mountain. A direct follow up to 2015's 2xc90 "In Stereo", "In Stereo II" picks up with another heady collection of hardware improvisations recorded direct to cassette tape at his undisclosed technoid lair.

Here, Thornton summons his vast array of synths, MIDI controllers, and drum machines to do his bidding, leaving the listener hanging on for the ride, just as the nitrous begins to seep through the floorboards. Bobbing and weaving thru an obstacle course of animated textures, interlocking rhythms, and abstract zone-quadrants, Tim side-steps expectations on a dime (just as you start to get the hang of the disorientation), dissolving the grid and pivoting in a 4th dimensional game of Tron/chess whose sole constant compass guiding to geographic north only the man behind the curtain can see. He leads the machines down dizzying fractal alleyways, treading the lines of IDM and hiphop with infusions of free jazz rhythms, steamrolling the shit out of any bearings you might reach out to grasp on to along the way. Slap on that seasickness patch before boarding, it's a doozy.
