Lockbox – Neo Druid
Primordial Void presents a new album from NY-based, Hausu Mountain alum Lockbox, aka Jesse Briata. Actively producing whirring, introspective and fractured club music for over a decade, the producer, DJ and visual artist imbued this latest effort, Neo Druid, with feelings and stories from a period spent living as a drifter in the midwest.
Says Briata: “This album came from stretches of time where I was literally just consumed by music. I wouldn’t eat or sleep properly. I would live in random peoples houses and bring an OS9 computer and all my hardware and just set up and work on the same track for a week [...] to go from that experience to a club type situation, which was my only lifeline to society, could sometimes be kind of jarring. I started reflecting moreso on the patina of the experience that people have in clubs, and tried to make something that functions as an impression of the entire continuum of dance music that still operates as functional pop."
