Luke Calzonetti has gone through many guises and styles before arriving at his latest. From skitz-grind outfit Child Abuse to jazz to painting. Leisure Village is his third album on In Paradisium and shows all he’s taken in and turned into sound design prowess. 8 tracks of glorious soft ambient electronica with an Aphex Twin like lean toward the eerie and detatched.

Seemingly born from a primordial 90s chillout sludge, NYC’s Run Dust emerges in full vaporlike form with his modern take on that synth-string-and-beat sound of yore. He’s even got his own computer game to dramatise the beatmakery. It’s out on In Paradisum, the label that hosts Low Jack’s musings.
Apparently he used to be a model, then a grind-jazz player (!), and now an electronica peddler who retains the messiness of the latter, combines it with afterclub string sounds, stuttered beats and occasional dubbiness (‘Distant Bloods’) to bring you a nice slab of fringe synth nonsense. It’s pretty varied, just have listen to ‘Jokichi’ after ‘Distant Bloods’ and you’ll get the picture. ‘Jokichi’ focuses on very loose, almost triplet cycles of percussion and simulated strings and is a feast for the ears. Kinda like the wobbly dances of Rashad Becker on his Traditional Music… series.
Thought I was gonna dismiss this as another vaporwave blur-out record but boy did it change my mind.
