Unfortunately, London-based producer Error Operator has announced that he’s ceased making music in order to pursue other ventures. As a token of appreciation for the support he’s received over the years, he’s given us “August Filled With Rain,” which is apparently the end-all song for the artist born Andrew Collins. The melancholy production opens with gentle guitar strums, and slowly builds up to a soft melody of warm, meditative synths. The details—sparkling chimes, subtle low end, and crackling vinyl dust—give Error Operator’s final salvo a calming vibe that makes for both a testament of his skills as a producer and a suitable farewell to his work in that world.
