Zebra

Mexican Summer

Rhythm-heavy and genre defying, the new release from DJ/artist/producer Alexis Georgopoulos’s Arp project is at once a captivating contradiction. The title, Zebra, conjures up images of opposites; a pattern of alternating spectrum-ends. Equal parts old and new, Zebra manages to angle down a line of mercurial song structures. Inspired by Joni Mitchell as much as Japanese ‘80s ambient and New Age, Arp’s fifth album to date incorporates tape delays, analog synths, electronic and acoustic drums, a Rhodes Chroma, flutes and other classical instruments, harmonizers, and the creative strength of Georgopoulos himself.

Zebra represents Georgopoulos’s minimalism at its most luxuriousa near hour-long expanse of adroit architecture and rhythmic topography. (www.studioalexisgeorgopoulos.com)
