Among the nicknames given to this English artist over his ten-year career, one is “Prince of the Valley of the Wind”. And anyone who attended one of the three Montreux concerts by this electro-pop jewelsmith is sure to remember it like a waking dream. Literally. Starting out as an artisan of eerie minimalism, this California resident has moved on from his introspective soul to captivating syntheses in which folk is deconstructed, breakbeat becomes majestic, and bass music becomes magnetic. Praised by Bon Iver and Jay-Z, project manager for Beyoncé and Frank Ocean, the author of Overgrown (2013) released a hypnotic fourth album, Assume Form (2019), featuring Rosalia and Travis Scott. It’s already a cult record.
