Back over the summer, we followed up an extended profile on L.I.E.S. founder Ron Morelli in our magazine with an oral history of his militantly bullshit-free dance music mini-empire. Two of the artists we spoke with were Brooklyn's Lili Schulder and Chicago producer Svengalisghost, who were readying a collaborative double LP under the name Shadowlust. Here's a gritty, industrially pistoning track from the recently released Trust in Pain, set to a narratively abstruse combination of live footage and "video mulch" animation from Brooklyn artist Luke Wyatt, who also records for L.I.E.S. under the name Torn Hawk. Grab the record via All Day Records (US) or Rush Hour (Europe), and read Matthew Schnipper's recent interview with Morelli here.
