The Bunker New York label kicks off with a long-awaited debut EP from Michael Hopkins aka Leisure Muffin, a regular attendee and performer at the legendary NYC Bunker party since it first originated in 2003. The centerpiece of the record is "In Wearable Hertz," a soaring epic pairing modular synths with violin that brings to mind vintage Klaus Schulze or Laurie Spiegel. "Heldscalla" begins with a disorienting cascade of filter sweeps before falling into a deep pool of sound. "Alys" recalls vintage LFO and 808 State, while sounding ruthlessly modern. Reference points include early Warp (Seefeel, Autechre, and Aphex), Drexciya, Skinny Puppy, Meat Beat Manifesto, Coil, and Perrey And Kingsley.
