Whether it's the banal or the beautiful, Seattle-based Dave Pezzner doesn't discriminate when sourcing inspiration for Last Night in Utopia, his sophomore album on Systematic Recordings. Recorded largely during a busy touring period in December 2011, the DJ, producer and composer who has garnered widespread respect for his ability to trapeze between disco, house, and techno without ever losing that organic sense of spontaneity, continues this mantra with his latest opus. Pezzner describes sketching out a large portion of the album in isolation while in Malta and Rome, gradually building tracks from the smallest, simplest ideas. Elsewhere, a sonic inkling would take shape while at the airport, travelling on a train or plane and Pezzner's laptop would immediately pop open and he'd begin giving the idea color and form. It's a freeform approach that gives way to a divergent palette of sounds, all imbued with the appropriate sprinkling of personality and perk to mirror Pezzner's intuitive production approach and ensures the multi-layered 15-track album is able to roam thematic territory both heady and floor-filling with exhilarating results.
