New York electronic producer Lee Bannon earned a solid amount of acclaim last year for his drum and bass leaning Alternate/Endings album. And today, he’s announced that he’s following that up with a new full-length titled Pattern of Excel. A press release indicates that the album leans away from the sound of his last album, toward something more atmospheric: “Gone are the rapidfire breaks and growling b-lines of his debut, replaced instead by a considered exploration of ambient soundscapes and drone influences.”
Bannon has shared a new track from the album, “Artificial Stasis,” which you can check out below along with the album’s tracklist.
Pattern of Excel is out July 10 via Ninja Tune.
