Music: SkinnyTrips – Sunrise

The name of this project evokes an acid house label from the early ’90s, but the music that Shannan Johnson creates under the moniker is about as far as you can get from happy bleep grooves and 4/4 drum beats. The opening track from this “sonic recreation of a day” features a sample of morning prayers sung by a Muslim cleric overlaid with harsh pinging industrial sounds. Things get a little more sequencer friendly on the next track “Journey,” but only in service of some patience testing tones and scattered rumblings from the robotic fragments collecting dust in the corner of the room.
