“The album was inspired by the artist’s dread – an existential cocktail of hypochondria and anxiety.”

 

Ireland-based producer Lighght this week released his debut solo effort on UK imprint Dream Catalogue. The project follows on from his collaborative EP with Cnámha released Australian label Sidechains.

Here’s what Dream Catalogue had to say about ‘The Skin Falls Off The Body’.

“Short, but not very sweet, this is a 12-minute riptide of violent IDM that takes notes from the likes of Autechre and Aphex Twin, appealing to the more gruesome aspects of both, apparent in the sound design which picks at your ears and bearing similarities to the likes of The Future Sound Of London with its dreamy (or nightmarish) hardware-utilising approach.

“The album was inspired by the artist’s dread – an existential cocktail of hypochondria and anxiety. In a fucked up way this serves as an antidote to these negative thought patterns by placing you directly in the heart of this inner turmoil. A warning notice, if anything.”
