^L_ follows his 2014 debut album, Love Is Hell, released digitally by Antime, and an extensive 2015 tour of Germany with Mexican labelmate AAAA, with a more dancefloor-oriented 12" on the Berlin-based imprint. From the slamming '90s-style techno belter "She Only Loves Me Because She Doesn't Live With Me" and the eerie techno-house hybrid "Hello, I'm Richard Clayderman" to the hard-hitting breakbeats on "Phil Spector" and "Locked-In Syndrome" and the allusions to heyday 2-step on "Too Weird To Live, Too High To Die," ^L_'s sample-heavy aesthetics are as distinctive as they are cohesive. The narrative of The Outsider knits the already consistent EP even more tightly together and is expressed by the voice of none other than the late David Foster Wallace.
