Brendan Angelides is a Los Angeles-based electronic music producer who records and performs live as Eskmo. His multi-genre compositions have been featured on influential labels like Ninja Tune, Warp Records and Planet Mu. The “Terra” EP is the follow up and opposite-side-of-the-coin release to his October release “Language”. While “Language” delved into “chunky dance aesthetics turned on their head”, “Terra” explores a slower, slightly darker and more raw side of the field. The themes center around Earth from the standpoint of being human and the archetypal worlds we fall into.
His 2010 self-titled full-length, released on Ninja Tune, was described by Future Sequence as “Create(ing) his own sound.” and BBC Music noted the album as “Electrifyingly enveloping…Mind-melting invention.” Ninja Tune recording artist and film composer Amon Tobin hailed his work as “some of the best production I’ve heard in recent times” in 2009. Shortly thereafter, the pair teamed up to release a collaborative project under the name ESKAMON on Eskmo’s own record label, Ancestor, in early 2010.
