Mast shares “The Waters” featuring Jeremiah Jae in preparation for debut release for Alpha Pup records | Music News
Mast is the alter-ego of the Philadelphia raised, Los Angeles based, sound sculpture Tim Conley, who will be making his Alpha Pup debut with the full length LP, OMNI. Noted as a “musical sphere of bliss and structure, of chaos and destruction” the juxtaposed description fits the tonality perfectly. The ominous landscapes created by Mast are as elegantly textured as they are hauntingly composed. To prepare for the release of his first full length, he has given the world a sneak peak into the project with a tune he concocted with the help of Warp Records‘ Jeremiah Jae. The track is a pulsating avant-electronic/fusion masterpiece known as “The Waters” and it will appear on OMNI which is set for release on January 28th. Check out the awesome writeup courtesy of our good friends at Alpha Pup records and give “The Waters” featuring Jeremiah Jae a spin below.
From Alpha Pup Records:
The multiverse of MAST is strikingly similar to physical life here on earth. Philadelphia raised, L.A. residing Tim Conley presents us with the everlasting unchanging everything of “OMNI”, a debut musical sphere of bliss and structure, of chaos and destruction. MAST communicates to the core with a contemporary, electronic review of song-writing through a jazz composer’s lens of unorthodox transcendence. Invoking the spirit of monumental Japanese painter Katsushika Hokusai, Conley pronounces an aesthetic theme to the surrounding emotive course of the album at-large bound by the serene and magical landscapes sometimes confusing, always intriguing.
The Los Angeles electronic forefront of Alpha Pup Records speaks to every walk of life on the “OMNI” vibration plane, and it is not alone that the MAST vessel sets sail the maiden voyage. Assists from soul-navigating vocal gestures of Anna Wise (Sonnymoon, Kendrick Lamar), way-out raps from Brainfeeder/Warp’s Jeremiah Jae, lullaby serenades from Low Leaf, and the long time partner / tourmate RYAT (Brainfeeder) attribute to the intricate album weaving of all things. All companions considered, it is Conley’s solo sense of devotion to experimental process that guides us through the perfect flux that is MAST.
