It seems German producer Douglas Greed has come a long way since his early, tripped-out recordings for Freude am Tanzen, but however distant mid-noughties tracks like “Girlfriend in a Coma” seem, his distinctive flair for weird sonic detailing remains. Driven, the follow-up to his 2011 debut KRL, is loaded with odd left turns and stylistic excursions; certainly the house and techno touchstones appear less and less frequently. They’re replaced by atmospheric sweep and boundary-testing pop—we’re particularly fond of the Animal Collective-flavored title track featuring former EB festival revelation Mooryc. Be the first to check out the full album in our exclusive stream ahead of its release later this week.
