Since sharing his latest sonic offerings, its become abundantly clear that formative Australian producer Ned Beckley (a.k.a Lower Spectrum) is no stranger to sound design. While his music continues to gain a considerable amount of traction internationally, Beckley has soundtracked and edited a number documentaries and shorts, while having also scored music for The Australian Ballet. Despite having a full schedule with all types of various musical projects, Lower Spectrum has still managed to find the time to craft a number of noteworthy releases while supporting the likes of Jon Hopkins, Andy Stott, Pantha Du Prince, Flako, Onra, and Nightmares On Wax in recent months.
Ahead of his forthcoming New Haze EP, which is set to land on the Australian music label Pilerats Records in April, Lower Spectrum has offered up his track “Masquerade” as today’s XLR8R download. Kicking off with an airy, minimal, and pleasantly erratic blues vibe, the track drastically teeters between a confounding acoustic sound and an intricate synth arrangements that give it great confidence and swing. While the sound may put one in mind of Nicolas Jaar’s musical mastery and style, Lower Spectrum manages to preserve a distinct pattern and tonality that is all his own.
