A/8 RELEASES PULSING NEW SINGLE “PROMOTOR” FROM SOPHOMORE ALBUM “TRANSFORMER”
New Haven, CT (October 20th, 2019) - A/8 has released the first single “PROMOTOR” from his forthcoming sophomore album, TRANSFORMER. The song offers a glimpse of what’s ahead on the electronic industrial dance album-- that is, a departure from the artist/producer/label founder Alon Gordon’s more amorphous and experimental first LP, ELEMENTS. The new single is out now on Gordon’s label Alotronic Records, streaming digitally on all platforms.
“PROMOTOR” is an uptempo romp, with arpeggiators pulsing urgently under a heavily processed spoken-word vocal. The new music marks a metamorphosis for the electronic artist and producer, traversing terrain previously unexplored by A/8, including vocals as well as collaborations with other artists. The club-ready house/trance single’s synth riffs and thumping programmed drums recall Nine Inch Nails and Daft Punk.
TRANSFORMER, set for release October 21st is itself a shapeshifter, journeying from the fiercely catchy drum and bass songs fit for a European club scene to more laid-back tracks that meander and groove. While A/8’s previous LP was packed with free-flowing trance instrumentals, his signature blend of techno, drum and bass, and classical elements takes a more structured form across the new album, which centers on a quest to find meaning in an increasingly depersonalized world. As the sequel, TRANSFORMER builds on A/8’s earlier exploration of themes like the tug-of-war between man and machine.
A/8 will celebrate the release of its lead single “PROMOTOR” tonight, October 16th with a performance at Tazraks in Naugatuck, CT.
