An abandoned house in a deserted landscape conceals something sinister beneath its floorboards, where two sycophantic workers drag a man — beaten, bloodied, and paralyzed — before a glitchy hologram. Caught under the spell of their technofascist overlord, the workers perform an irreversible procedure on the patient.
In the late fall of 2019, slip – aka Los Angeles based artist Taylor Brown – released his debut album ‘the cost.’
The album is both meditative and impactful — traversing amongst the hypnotic rhythms of trip hop pioneers Massive Attack and Portishead, the ominous narratives of while injecting his own brand of groove-based production — slip emerges with an album that is fresh, engaging, and funky.
slip has garnered a slow boiling buzz while releasing singles “head on backwards,” “the patient,” “the optimist,” and “the thought of a past life is comforting” over the past two years. Now, it is time to view the artist’s work with a wider lens, to piece the puzzle together.
