Welcome To The Fam: LOWER SPECTRUM

Welcome To The Fam: LOWER SPECTRUM

We've been sitting on this for a while, and the wait has been worth it.

Each time we expand the Pilerats Records family we get plenty of warm fuzzies, and this year has been especially fantastic as we've announced Freo party starters Koi Child, future rap prince Floria, and now we get to another string to the proverbial bow in Ned Beckley, AKA LOWER SPECTRUM. Beckley is an artist that constantly pushes himself outside of his musical comfort zone and expresses himself most articulately via music. The result is that his work is always keenly felt, and always feels important. His music is ruminative and emotional, shape­shifting physical power with immersive melody, concentrated minimalism with absorbing aesthetics.

After the alluring 2014 release Traces received over a million plays on Spotify, he's been continuously weaving his ingredients of discarded vinyl samples, warm textures, analog synth textures and splintering drums around Australia with sets at St Jerome’s Laneway Festival, Brisbane’s BIGSOUND and Melbourne Music Week, as well as support slots for international luminaries Jon Hopkins, Pantha Du Prince, Andy Stott, Flako, Onra and Nightmares On Wax. Furthermore, this month sees LOWER SPECTRUM debut new single Proxima in Perth clubland alongside experimental heavyweights Lapalux (THIS SUNDAY), and Shigeto (NEXT FRIDAY). Check out some recent praise below before streaming Proxima - a track that requires your undivided attention from start to finish:

"Proxima is so beautiful" - The FADER
"multilayered, textured and richly melodic" - THUMP
"pure magic" - Richard Kingsmill, Triple J
"dramatic and enthralling" - Finest Ego
"intricate craftwork and epic compositions" - Inthemix
