Tryst and his Aerious EP
Tryst (UK) is the protagonists of the next release on the Apparel Tronic catalogue.
We asked a few questions to the man himself to get to know a bit more about him and his music!
-Hey guys, how are you and how does it feel to release again an EP on Apparel Tronic?
Everything is good for us, we’re navigating our way through the madness and keeping things positive and creative. Tough times for all but feels like we’re going to be out of this and back on track soon. It’s an absolute pleasure to be releasing on Apparel Tronic again. After the incredible response to our debut it seemed like a logical choice to work together and share more of these sounds with the world.
-Talk us through the creative process behind the making of the Aerious EP. How did it come about and how did you work on it, from a technical POV?
The project was originally started with the aim to take field recordings on our trip to Seoul in South Korea and built things around there, I (Jordan) started sketching out some ideas ahead of this. Due to the pandemic the trip was cancelled and I was sat on these ideas for some time, eventually they were reopened and worked on and gradually things began to take shape. We decided to reframe the concept of the album and just focus on creating things that take us to places, an escape from the restraints put on us over the past year and a half. After working on various things from The Hague I continued to bounce the project back and forth to Manchester with Larry and eventually the whole thing grew into what It is today.
-Which are the main music influences that inspired the record? Can you share with us three tracks that stimulated you during the making of?
Musically this is heavily inspired by ethereal ambient sounds, downtempo balearic music and hazy deep house. A few of the most notable inspirations sonically would be IDM acts like Detroit Escalator Company, B12, Plaid and John Beltran, plus others in the more experimental house world like John Roberts Dial Records albums and Move D and Benjamin Brunn’s work together. Also taking a lot of influence from ambient artists like Gigi Masin, Albrecht La’Brooy, Kaoru Inoue, Susumu Yokota and Jan Jelinek.
These three tracks in particular have been on heavy rotation the past year or so...
