Timothy Allan - Ride

I like Timothy Allan's music.

He's put together a new collection of his work in a deal with New York label Kult Records. The album can be previewed (Flash interface) and purchased online as well.

One of the elements of Timothy's productions that always manages to keep my ear interested is his use of drum loops as textures. Some music in this genre can become very rhythm dominant, which can cause a kind of fatigue, especially with repetitive loops. IMHO, Allan's really an artist when it comes to blending all this together into an especially listenable collection of music.

I interviewed Timothy a couple of years ago (podcast here) and it's cool to see him continuing to produce and evolve his art.
