Release date: Jan 8th, 2013
Portland Oregon-based producer Halo Refuser is excited to announce his 5th studio release, an amazing new mini-album titled Melting Magic which will be released on Tuesday January 8th 2013 by Innerflight Music. Featuring four original tracks of his special brand of glitchy cinematic EDM, Melting Magic is perhaps Halo Refuser's best release so far and certainly the best sounding, with mixes that jump out of the speakers. Entirely self-produced, the album was mastered by UK legend Kevin Metcalf at SoundMasters London and features artwork from digital artist and fellow producer Scott 'Sporeganic' Hedstrom. From the relentlessly wobbly Moog bass in 'SlowSand' and the extreme speaker-cone destruction of 'Expedition' to the trancy dub grooves of 'Summer Freeze' and the classic Ninja-Tune downtempo feel of 'Stargazing', the album has a warmth and a sense of spaciousness that instantly transports the listener to Halo Refuser's alternate reality for a guided journey featuring crickets and owls, film projectors, garbled voices, and subtle skank guitars trading moments with undeniably crushing beats, drops, and chest-rattling bass.
