The Entirety of Matter
One year after Kris Menace's collaborative album Features (COMP 022CD), the incredible maestro of all things electronica returns with quite possibly his most stunning body of work yet -- The Entirety of Matter. Upon first listen, the sheer emotion ploughed into Kris' beautifully-crafted, futuristic synth-scapes is omnipresent. Joining the dots between melancholy and joy to tranquility and agitation, every track oozes with passion, reinforcing Kris' ability to capture raw feelings and make them into beautiful, empathetic musical pieces that tug hard on even the coldest of heart-strings. The Entirety of Matter comprises 12 instrumental tracks, each one with its very own futuristic GIF animation designed by Mr. Div (aka Boston-based motion graphic designer Matt DiVito). Kris' works have been signed to some of the most influential labels in the world and have in turn become treasures of the world's electronic dance community for both fans and pioneers alike. His prodigious influence on contemporary electronic music is well documented, with Kris becoming one of the most respected producers, known for a string of acclaimed releases including LPs, remix work for LCD Soundsystem, Depeche Mode, Metronomy, Röyksopp, Air, Underworld, Moby, and Lana Del Rey. Just to name a few of his side projects: Black Van (DFA), Menace & Lord, and Stars On 33 (Eskimo). In 2012 he unleashed the incredible Features album, collaborating with Julian Hamilton (The Presets), Miss Kittin, Robert Owens, the late and great Romanthony, Xavier Naidoo, Chelonis R. Jones, Dodgy, and MTV award-winner Simon Lord, among many others.
