Today, Cardiff upstart Bradley Albertides (a.k.a. Bluredism) drops his debut LP via the fledgling Teng label. The 10-track Beautiful Ugly Collection showcases the budding artist’s knack for patchwork electronic production, a talent heard in spades on album cut “Dots in Patches.” Built around a set of repurposed chords, “Dots in Patches” is an introspective tune that fuses together what would at first seem to be disparate elements—delicate chords, a semi-industrial break, a 2-step indebted kick-and-rimshot skip, and alternating layers of noisy percussion—but which Albertides has no trouble making sense of. The resulting production is a unique hybrid of textured dance music, one that is bound to take many different forms across the man’s just-released debut full-length.
