Leaftype writeup in Portals Press

LEAFTYPE

Faith at Portals just posted a nice piece about Leaftype:

Like his fellow Belgian Man compatriots, the LA-based artist Leaftype, a.k.a. Christopher Knollmeyer, is no stranger to the practice of “extravagant genre hopping,” and his newest release LTEP0008 shows just how nimbly he can jump. On “Ooh,” the producer keeps one foot rooted in the skittering traditions of drum and bass, while reaching, through heady melodic involutions and a structure that disorients like a dream, for something enticingly unfamiliar. The result is at once propulsive and paralyzing, a sensation akin to the pleasurable discomfort of pins and needles.

Thanks, Faith! Check out the article over at Portals.

I made this as a fun project to keep me on my feet. With any luck, I’ll start actually dj-ing—not just for my friends or myself. Mad rad high-fives to anyone who actually dances to this.
