Out-ER sub-label Pregnant Void is proud to announce the release of hi.mo’s debut album “Urtiis”. Landing on double vinyl in June 2018, it is a fantastically absorbing showcase of the Italian’s weird and wonderful fusion of various strains of sound from jazz to hip hop to classical. “The alteration of conventional musical patterns thrills me”, says the artist who is classically trained in piano and uses that knowledge to play with rules, structures and forms. Influenced by IDM, African drums, jazz and the interplay of chords, rhythm and harmony, hi.mo infuses his electro-acoustic productions with found sound samples and analogue and digital tools. This is a spelling-binding and intimate album that is filled with invention, but never at the expense of the overall experience, which is beautiful and beguiling throughout.
