Minneapolis-based producer Huntley Miller (a.k.a. Cepia) just dropped this one in our inbox, saying not a whole lot more than “Hello” and “Thanks!” Miller’s refreshing brevity—not to mention his solid musical background and time spent as a Ghostly-signed artist—lead to a couple of quick mouse clicks, and before we knew it, we were nodding our heads to the angular, steel-drum grooves of “Algiers.” It brings to mind a handful of Warp’s finest artists, particularly the clattering piano melodies from Aphex Twin’s Drukqs and the drifty polyrhythms of early Autechre, but manages to distill those sounds into something fresh and original. It’s anyone’s guess whether this track is a one-off freebie or part of something larger; we’re just glad Cepia shared it with us.
