Heathered Pearls Procures Texturized, Poignant Techno On ‘Mack & Bellevue’
The Polish-born and Detroit-raised Jakub Alexander has now released a second track off his upcoming record, by way of his Heathered Pearls moniker. Expectedly, “Mack & Bellevue,” as it’s titled, is an imposingly tactile techno undertaking, with ample poignancy to match.
And yet, a sonic feat such as “Mack & Bellevue” — while it is striking— is common of an artist like Alexander’s caliber. After all, he’s long used his art — music, installations, and performances — to concurrently chart a trajectory into his future.
Alexander also serves as the head of A&R for the illustrious Ghostly International record label — currently home to virtuosos like Tycho and Com Truise. Humble in his demeanor, the prodigious Heathered Pearls is unquestionably educated in musical expansiveness, and his experimentally-inclined techno oozes this facet wholeheartedly. On his latest “Mack & Bellevue,” Heathered Pearls does all but tread lightly.
Alexander will release a new EP — Detroit, MI 1997-2001 — early in December. And if “Mack & Bellevue” serves as any indication, he’ll be firing off some of his most refined, archetypally experimental work to date.
Detroit, MI 1997 – 2001 is out via Ghostly International December 8.
