Citzennn imparts his eagerly anticipated debut album, ‘Human Interface’, on Crosstown Rebels on 15th 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.
