Seattle resident Nelson Bean a.k.a Black Hat is an experimental drone man working on the fringes of the underground dance scene and producing some pretty interesting and, considering the connotations connected with the style, very rhythmic work.

Here we’re presented with three distinct pieces of out there dance music meant for home blurrzin’. Got to admit I’m pretty into this. By the sounds of things Bean uses a composite of hardware and digital manipulation to fine tune live jamz into approachable vinyl cuts. There’s a tons of layering and clever manipulation of tone to arrive at a style that is both blissed out and impressively tuneful for ‘drone’.

Particularly memorable is the side long epic ‘Memory Triptych’ that takes a singular synth tone and sends it on an adventure through differing atmospherics introducing deep bass tones, mesmerising splashes of percussion and deep, cinematic drones along the way. Not sure who I can compare it too as it’s a unique and confident evolution of the style, so I won’t bother. Absolutely wild shit though and totally worth a moment or two of your time.
