Ian Ginsing: Cosmetic Blemish 12″ EP

Solid, steady tech-house from a former Detroiter now living in Portland, and also known as Jerry Abstract. Solid, playful tracks with a snap and a crunch to them. Pretty minimal and groove-based, for the most part. “Wet Yeti” is as slyly cheeky as its title; “Womance” is a bit darker and more pensive, and has lots of cool snips and glitches. “Pattaya Shuffle” is a bit of a nervous rattler, with stammering beats and some weird cartoonish samples poking through near the end. “Seeping Into Film” has an almost dubstep/garage-ish bounce to it, and a filtered vocal sample that reminds me of Hardrive’s “Deep Inside” for some reason (but buried way deep inside). Available on Bandcamp, but “Wet Yeti” only appears on the 12″.
