San Diego producer the Gaslamp Killer’s debut LP, Breakthrough, is out September 18 via Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label. You’ve heard his and Miguel Atwood-Ferguson’s “Flange Face” already; now, here’s another single from the album, featuring like-minded beatmaker Dimlite.
PRODUCED BY: MATTHEWDAVID
ARTWORK: FELIX JACKSON JR.
THE GASLAMP KILLER
In anticipation of the release of his debut full-length album Breakthrough, the Gaslamp Killer offers a taste of the ominous urgency that infiltrates his sound with “Flange Face / Seven Years of Bad Luck for Fun.”
“Flange Face (with Miguel Atwood-Ferguson)” rattles into being from a scratchy dissonance and soon descends into a distorted, doom-filled drama. Twisted with tension and hemmed in by a smack of solemn strings, the track operates on a frequency of pure horror. “Flange Face (Low End Theory Edit)” takes it to the club, a bass-heavy gut puncher stripped down to the beats.
With loose drums and a rash of razor-covered synths, “Seven Years of Bad Luck for Fun (with Dimlite)” unsettles into a bath of cold shudders. Inky shadows lurk just beneath the surface, dark reflections of the monsters that are strung between the beats.
Suggestively sinister, the Gaslamp Killer’s latest release is a glimpse of the artist’s contorted sonic landscape, a frightening world of chattering evil and chills that bite into the spine.
From ‘Until the Quiet Comes’ out October 1/2 2012.

Azizi Gibson tells a story about the low lives we converse with daily, motherfuckers scared to be themselves, and probably can’t make decisions to save their lives. Don’t be the guy with the ski mask (Timmy). He’s a self-absored motherfucker that has no real friends or woman. PRIORITIES ALL FUCKED UP & HE’S SCARED TO SHOW HIS FACE.
KCB behind the camera as always bitch. It’s the preHISTORIC CREW HOE class has started, take a seat.
