Darkside are back. Nicolás Jaar and Dave Harrington have shared “Liberty Bell,” their first new song in years. The duo has also announced it will release a new album, titled Spiral, in spring 2021 via Matador. Listen to “Liberty Bell” below.
Nicolás Jaar and Dave Harrington released their debut DARKSIDE EP in 2011, before sharing their first full-length Psychic in 2013. The following year, they announced that the project was “coming to an end, for now,” and later played their last show at the Masonic Temple in Brooklyn in September 2014.
According to a press release, Jaar and Harrington began writing new music together in 2018 and finished their new album in December 2019. The record is mixed by Rashad Becker and mastered by Heba Kadry.
Recently, Darkside shared PSYCHIC LIVE JULY 17 2014, a live album capturing a show at Belgium’s Dour Festival.
Oct. 25 marked the release of my EP, Atelo, on Drvg Cvltvre's New York Haunted label, which has been home to Evol, Ekman, Ewa Justka, Loraine James and a load more killer music from the underground. Kind words from the label:
"After his sensational EP last year, we are happy to welcome Itzel back to NYH! Again he sent us so much good music that it wasn't easy selecting some of it for a decent size release. This is one of those producers that constantly defies the way he or she creates music, thus opening new paths in the jungle of electronic music. Soft tingeled melodies are Itzel's machete and strange, unhinged rhythms are his looking glass.
Itzel's sound is like a soft focus version of all of The Black Dog, Beaumont Hannant and B12's best tracks, updated into a 2019 sound palette. It is truly that great and that mind blowing. We can only hope for a resurgence of electronic music of this high quality!"
Assuming most users on WATMM are likely fans of The Black Dog, Beaumont Hannant and B12; we truly hope you enjoy this release. Its conception was adventurous. Thank you for listening!

“Hymn to Moisture” explores embodiment in natural phenomena by playing with microtonal and unstable tunings, shifting overtones, and integrated modulations that make it difficult to separate tone from noise. Evoking wind, water, rock, and flesh, the album occupies multiple spaces simultaneously: abrasive and tranquil, propulsive and meditative, familiar and alien. It shows an equal reverence for techno pioneers such as Jeff Mills, Pan Sonic, and Plastikman as it does for composers such as Eliane Radigue, Laurie Spiegel, and Phill Niblock. “Hymn to Moisture” is Rrose’s first solo album, and it unfolds with the scrupulous care and patience that defines all of Rrose’s auditory experiments. The album marks the artist’s most refined work to date.
Since its inception in 2011, the Rrose project has spawned over a dozen vinyl EPs on Sandwell District, Stroboscopic Artefacts, Infrastructure, and their own Eaux label as well as three collaborative albums with Bob Ostertag (on Buchla 200E modular synthesizer), Charlemagne Palestine (for two pianos), and Lucy (as Lotus Eater) respectively. A fourth album-length project on Seattle’s Further Records saw Rrose reinterpreting and extending James Tenney’s monolithic 1971 piece “Having Never Written a Note for Percussion” for solo gong. “Hymn to Moisture” is Rrose's first solo album of original material.
