Pete Swanson, “Pro Style”

Pete Swanson gave us this video last week, part of a full regiment of teasers for his upcoming Type Records LP of the same name. Every image is an executable file, socket-wrenched together by Brenna Murphy, with flat panels coated in seductive tiger-style squelching through their individual landscapes. Occasionally we see a non-standard cursor, or map marker, giving us a momentary burst of orientation, but mostly we're riding this Disco Deep Space Nine though bursts of a fog machine and we don't which way is up. If this track is indicative of what the rest of the record will sound like, Pete is keeping his promise to destroy all techno on this EP, which might be an even more brutal revelation than last year's Man With Potential.
