Andrew Leary, creator of Relation’s album Fear of Night, returns to Urban Torque with “Butty Box”, his debut solo single as Laserdisco. Following his recent explorations of electronic indie-pop with Relation, Andrew has delved into the depths of music software and synthesis to produce the tempo-oscillating quantization experiment that is “Butty Box”. The track finds Andrew deploying wobbly chords, stuttering arpeggios, loopy synth bleeps and off kilter percussion to create a well executed slab of wonky electronica. Also along for the ride is the more linear but similarly polyrhythmic excursion known as “Disconnect”, originally penned as a Relation b-side but now re-worked into a subtle tech-house gem.
