As Chrome Canyon, Morgan Z makes synthesizer music for the imagination. His Stones Throw release Elemental Themes makes you hunger for films starring Harrison Ford on a planet far away in search of bounty. He has an awesome new flexi in the new L.A. RECORD and will play Saturday with Peanut Butter Wolf, Pharoahs and more at Los Globos. This interview by Daiana Feuer.

This album is one of those most rare gems, an album that follows through on the promise of hip hop and breakbeat that rarely gets fulfilled: full sample immersion that leaves its sources big and bold yet fully, delightfully rearranged, a true collage braided together lovingly with original combinations of boxy beats and tinkling treble tones.

Daze of Heaven impressed me the most, if for nothing else because this guy approached loop-driven music from the exact opposite perspective of most one-man bands that might play Pehrspace or the Smell. Instead of creating beats with his mouth or a machine and then using that as a platform to make noise atop the beats, Daze of Heaven sets up his soundscape first, blasting his clarinet into the mike, then putting sounds from his mouth and from found feedback (I’m talking serious crackle, the kind of hiss that sounds like rain hitting drywall) into the mix. When he’s all done setting up the sound, this dude jumps into his drumset, which he plays standing up, in attack mode, almost at random and yet synced somehow with the swirling noise mess he’s cocooned around himself.
