EP PREMIERE: MAYACAMAS “I-5”

June 14th, 2018 | Listen

L.A. producer Mayacamas (Duncan Woodbury) is about to put out his new I-5 EP, a lightly conceptual electronic/synth/house suite about home and transition with most tracks named after an exit on the 5—and each track precisely suited for one of those long almost-lightless night drives up or down California’s backbone freeway. The jittery “Buttonwillow,” the punishing (and then rejuvenating once the second wind hits) “Lost Hills,” the charismatically cosmic “Santa Nella,” the tense closing theme of “Moon Mountain” and then the sun-comes-up outro “Mountain Terrace” all connect to the kind of solitary moods and moments that come with this kind of long-haul journey. I-5 is out tomorrow on Woodbury’s Lower Grand label, and you can pre-order here so you’re ready for your next trip up north.
