Mord Fustang bringing dense sound to House of Blues


Here's how dude recently described his tunes during an interview with the Beatportal website: "An adventurously nude fluctuant immaculate rainbow-coated thunderstorm with arpeggios, 1-up mushrooms and disco basslines, plus a wobble or two."

Got that?

Not yet?

OK, we'll try to break down Mord Fustang's changeling electro house: It's a frantic, head-spinning, coming-at-you-from-all-angles kind of deal, with zigzagging beats and a perpetually shifting sonic palate that squirms in its seat like a sugar-high kindergartner.

Fustang's big on Luke Vibert and Aphex Twin, meaning he has an experimental side that underscores a formal education in piano.

He hails from Estonia, a heavily forested country, with a sound that's similarly dense.
