DESCRIPTION

Citzennn imparts his eagerly anticipated debut album, ‘Human Interface’, on Crosstown Rebels on 29th June; manifested through technology and exploring it’s relationship with human condition.

Awarded the title of DJ Mag’s ‘Breakthrough DJ’ in 2013, Citizenn has won favour across multiple disciplines for his retro-futurist style. A film director in a former life, his affinity with working with technology led him to this first album, inspired by the direction it was taking humanity. The title track cracks the album into a dystopian tone reminiscent of artists such as Burial, Floating Points and Flying Lotus. Tracks like ‘Infatuation’, ‘Control’ and ‘Gone’ welcome in warmth with R&B-tinted smooth vocals, layered over textured beats that sit safe with artists such as Scuba and James Blake. As the record progresses, Citizenn’s recognisable sci-fi house synths, garage vibes and techno elements effortlessly combine in engaging classic beats surfacing in first single, ‘Tied’, and tracks including ‘Lacefront’ and ‘Shutters’ take a bow to the ground-breaking sounds of the late eighties and early nineties.

This is an impeccable debut album that is strong contender for one of the best electronic albums of the year.
