Illum Sphere 'Glass' LP
Producer, DJ and NTS resident Illum Sphere (Ryan Hunn) returns to Ninja Tune with his second full length ‘Glass’. An album stretching nine dynamic but focused tracks reminiscent of Helena Hauff and Kassem Mosse.
Hunn replaces the sharp turns and drastic shifts in altitude of 2014’s ‘Ghosts Of Then And Now’ with mechanical depth and a beating cohesiveness hinted at on his ‘Second Sight’ and ‘Spectre Vex’ 12”s. It’s a shift that’s bled into his acclaimed DJ sets and recent mixes for fabriclive and Dekmantel, previously drawing support from Benji B, Thom Yorke, Ben UFO and NTS.
Bespoke artwork by Lucas Dupuy.
Glass mastered black carbon CD in an uncoated softpack
with clear matte varnish detail.
LP pressed on clear 140g vinyl with uncoated 3mm spine sleeve, clear matte varnish detail, uncoated printed inner sleeve and download code.
‘Glass’ is Illum Sphere’s most crystal-clear statement to date following a conscious reduction in output and change in “situation and style,” as he describes it.
Illum Shere has contributed to the long running and esteemed fabriclive mix CD series (‘fabriclive 78’).
For fans of Helena Hauff, Kassem Mosse, Levon Vincent, Ben UFO, Demdike Stare, Rezzett, Boddika, Joy Orbison and Midland.
