Los Angeles transplant Woolymammoth has signed with Alpha Pup Records this year for the release of his debut full-length album Filling Spots. His music finds a bridge between experimental electronic and hip-hop, splicing together minimal rhythm schemes, raw analog samples, dynamic synth and processing work, and much more. Woolymammoth’s origins in San Francisco and the new community he has helped breed in Los Angeles find union in his craft, encapsulating a wide spectrum of subdued and explosive moments. The totality of Filling Spots contains this immersive affect, blending as one statement from track to track and giving the listener a journey that is constantly shifting. His bass-centric experiments churn and convulse under the surface, pulling you into a full-body listen. Avant-garde abstractions bubble beside strange, raw Eurorack samples, throwing tracks off balance again and again. “Mouthbreather” is disturbingly catchy and “Shadeslove” swims in a hypnotic stew of sounds. “Mustard (feat. Yokaze)” snaps into a quick-rolling mind melt, while “Riskybidness (feat. Tsuruda)” slips chaos between it’s beats. “Nofknway UMTME (feat. Bleep Bloop)” bolts off in a blur of upbeats and pummels the brain into a sonic black hole.
