Early next week, Seattle’s Tommy Mertens (a.k.a. Korma) will release his latest EP, ZGMF-X19A, named after a Japanese anime character from the Mobile Suit Gundam series. The EP will be released via Infinite Machine and consists of seven bass-heavy cuts, with Mertens achieving the EP’s machine-like aesthetic through “inspired sampling and deft arrangement of decrypted triple-A game soundbanks.” In support of the release, we’ve been gifted “Dismantle,” an unearthly cut full of sci-fi SFX, metallic scrapes, and ethereal pads, perfectly embodying the EP’s alien world. ZGMF-X19A will be out on May 11, with “Dismantle” available as a free download below; along with a stream of the previously released title track.
