Matthew Dear’s dark alter ego Audion first stormed the electronic-music scene in 2004, unveiling a trilogy of pulverizing singles that would ultimately re-align today’s techno sound. In 2006, Audion followed the series with the breakthrough club anthem “Mouth To Mouth,” a constantly ascending work of art that has captured the imagination of DJs and fans in all club genres worldwide. In 2009, Audion re-emerged with a load of new boundary-pushing material and a hypnotic, highly detailed live show which were powerful experiments in chaos and hypnotic depth, tearing down the walls of the live electronic-music experience.

Audion’s four-year silence now comes to an end with “Motormouth,” which premiered today on Pitchfork (also streaming here on Soundcloud). Just as 2009’s shapely singles were a sharp left turn from the serrated edges of 2005’s Suckfish full-length, “Motormouth” takes a hard right. Opening with relentless rave-era repetition and an endlessly ascending bassline, “Motormouth” climbs to perilous heights while a manic Vocoder jabbers in your ear. It’s a little sinister, a little mad, and sounds like ten parties happening at once—it could only be Audion. The “Motormouth” single is being released tomorrow on Spectral Sound.

Matthew Dear returns as Audion, new track "Motormouth" drops; 'Audion X' retrospective out 12/10 on Spectral Sound, 'Motormouth' single out tomorrow
