Lee Gamble Straddles Worlds On "Motor System" Single for PAN

The London-based experimental electronic artist conjures up an insomniac's in-between state on the first single from his new album, KOCH.

There's a look in the eye of London-based artist Lee Gamble in the above photo by George Gatsas that anyone who has suffered a spot of insomnia will recognize: an air of being in-between two worlds, pulled taut in opposing directions yet caught in perpetual free-fall. Perhaps it's me projecting—or the reflection of the dusk sky light—but that disjointed sensation is also what Gamble's "Motor System" from his new album KOCH is awash in. There's a palpable weight to it, a density that pulses with the heat, moisture and bass of a thousand half-remembered nights. I can't tell if it's a haunting or the call of home, which probably means it's both. Bill Kouligas' PAN label will release KOCH on September 16.
