Tycho Unveils New Video

In the twelve or so years that Scott Hansen has been putting out records as Tycho, from early bedroom productions to 2011’s glossy album Dive, the American producer has carved his own niche within the electronica and ambient marketplace.  His signature sound of reverb heavy and washed-out melodies set against softly insistent drums have come to constitute an instantly recognisable,  tonally manipulated aesthetic that, as every review of his work tends to reiterate, reflects his work as a professional photographer under the guise of ISO50.

And whilst Tycho’s finely-crafted sound has earned him a core of devoted followers and critical praise, the downside to having such a tight audio range is that it becomes harder and harder not to repeat yourself. It’s a pitfall that the Californian producer seems aware of. Awake, his second album for Michigan’s leftfield dance-music label Ghostly International, saw Hansen hook up with guitarist Zach Brown and drummer Rory O’Connor for the first Tycho album to feature live instrumentation in a move that injected Tycho’s trademark soft-hued melodies with a slightly rough-edge.

With the album not long behind us Tycho has now decided to share the video treatment for album cut ‘See’. Directed by Bradley G Munkowitz, you can check out the forest set video below: 

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
