Lifted is an ongoing collaborative project from Matt Papich (a.k.a. Co La) and Beautiful Swimmers’ Max D, who will be releasing their debut album, 1, on PAN at the end of the month. A couple of the tracks from the album surfaced in Max D’s XLR8R Podcast from last year, which had us hanging to hear more. The eight track LP showcases improvisations and experiments in leftfield techno and ambient, and was recorded in their respective hometowns of Baltimore and Washington DC. The pair also called on Gigi Masin, Motion Graphics, 1432 R co-founder Dawit Eklund, Jeremy Hyman, and Jordan GCZ (of Juju & Jordash) for contributions to the album, which will see release on April 27.
