Queens electronic producer and multi-instrumentalist stud1nt makes difficult but incredibly rewarding dance music. The philosophy seeps into the way he presents himself as an artist, preferring “they” pronouns to obscure the gender binary. A calm, cool darkness defines their newest effort “Suture,” featured on the debut compilation by Oakland, California label Club Chai. It’s more straightforward than the challenging cuts they dropped last year, but no less satisfying.
stud1nt will perform a live re-scoring of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s The Holy Mountain at Brooklyn Bazaar next month. Check out the event on FB here. Check out stud1nt’s gorgeous 15-minute release from last summer.
