Max Cooper, the London producer behind a number of memorable EPs on minimal-inclined techno label Traum, among other places—seriously, look at his Discogs—will release his debut full-length, Human, on March 10th of next year. First, though is his gorgeous "Adrift" single, featuring longtime collaborator Kathrin deBoer on jazzy vocals. Like his recent classical piano-meets-glitch EP, Fragmented Self, but maybe more accessible, "Adrift" sounds to me like a simultaneous portal into the future and past, or maybe evidence that it's one big circle in the end, coming and going together. "Adrift" comes out December 16th on iTunes. My expectations for the LP are pretty damn high.
