Joseph Nanner’s primary liaison is a seemingly normal man named Owen who is currently living in the Midgar of our modern world: New York City. Exotik Pylon is absolutely overjoyed to be presenting Owen’s debut release under the Nanner nom de plume – two extraordinarily turbo-textured Technicolor mini albums available as a cassette double-pack and separate downloads.
Atmospheric Slow Jams for the Pilots and New Star Broadcasting are companion pieces inhabiting a neon dreamworld – a blissfully captivating overload of kinetic-vignettes orbiting a future Earth were the advent of space travel fulfils all the neuromantic visions of Sci-Fi Anime.
Crash-landing on the dancefloor, Joseph Nanner throws a cartoon-techno galactic narrative around fizzing beats and raw drum-machines, gargantuan synths, interruptions from Japanese pop radio and woozy space ambience all wrapped around a stripped-down architecture parallel to travellers like Hype Williams, Zomby and Dam Funk.
Simplicity is the key here. And TUNES. These sometimes rapid-fire/ sometimes sleepy constellations are absolutely saturated in melody as hooks erupt like flares and fly at an extraordinary rate, appearing and disappearing in the blink of an ear. From the first second you’re instantly teleported to a hyper-real zone of Wormholes, Hyper Gate Guardians, Creepy Night Flights and Aqualounge’s. These are Manga rocket-ships in a bottle. Joseph Nanner is about why and how we explore synthetic worlds, and what they mean. Joseph Nanner is about creating huge worlds but only giving small glimpses of them at a time
Acclaimed artist Joey Holder has produced a video for Neon Runway which we will be releasing shortly. Atmospheric Slow Jams for the Pilots and New Star Broadcasting were mastered by Brian Pyle (Ensemble Economique).
