Logan Takahashi Explores The Organic Side Of Technology On “Rekr”

NoGeo drops April 15.

March 30, 2016

Next month, Logan Takahashi, one half of the electronic duo Teengirl Fantasy (and full disclosure: FADER fam), will release his debut solo album, a project inspired by Ryuichi Sakamoto and the early aughts Brooklyn tabletop electronics scene, titled NoGeo.

A crunchy meditative track "Cella" led-off the album. Today, he has shared a second: an undulating number called "Rekr" that rises and falls, and is peppered with electrode-zap and jitters.

"‘Rekr’ is one of the earlier tracks I started while making this record," Takahashi wrote in an email to The FADER describing the track. "It’s in a 7/4 time signature which gives it a kind of forward rolling feel. I wanted to play with ideas of fluid motion, and obscuring ’the grid’ somewhat. A big inspiration for this track is the notion of digital forms being rooted in natural material—the inherent organicness of technology and the inherent mechanicalness of nature."

Listen to "Rekr" below; NoGeo is out April 15, preorder it here.
