Dekmantel Podcast 356 – Tristan Arp Tracklist
Mexico-city based Tristan Arps blurred the lines between the synthetic and the organic on his second full-length, Sculpturegardening. Released on Wisdom Teeth just last week, the Human Pitch label boss approached the album as a gardener might approach a landscape: using his array of machines and modular synths he let the music write itself. It’s resulted in an album that bristles with glitches, ambient pads, downtempo drums, digital perc and micro-house details that succeeds in its mission to blend the made with the played.
With this week’s podcast, Tristan – who is also a member of Asa Tone with Melati Malay and Kaazi – aimed to show off all his sides as a producer, listener and DJ. While his album goes beyond the dance floor, here he mixes those styles with what he would play in a club. “Slippery rhythms, levitating environments and everything between these orbits,” as he describes it. There are lots of edits, often many tracks are layered up at once and the whole thing plays out with many an unpredictable twist and turn. It’s as adventurous and asymmetrical as you would expect from this always innovative artist.
