Minor Science is the project of British Berlin-based producer Angus Finlayson. He announced the release of the first full-length. Second Language is out on April 3rd via Nic Tasker’s Whities and it is available to pre-order here. “Blue Deal” is the first excerpt.
According to the press release, the album gives us a widescreen view of a musical world previously glimpsed through the producer’s series of 12″ releases. A kaleidoscope of tempos and intensities, the record is often fast but rarely heavy, fizzing with detail but full of space, euphoric in places but frequently blue in mood.
As the title suggests, the album takes translation as a guiding principle, putting an idiomatic spin on familiar styles – from Detroit-ish techno and hyperspeed electro to twilit electronica, musique concrete and sour modal jazz.
