In Decay, available July 17th worldwide, provides a for the idiosyncratic journeys of New Jersey producer Seth Haley — aka Com Truise — through the history of electronic music. A compilation of unreleased, early recordings, In Decay encompasses 13 tracks that have previously been either only available as demos online or are entirely unheard tracks dating from before Haley’s official releases — his debut Cyanide Sisters EP, its follow-up full-length Galactic Melt, and last year’s Fairlight EP.
While the ’80s-influenced synth sounds, rubbery basslines and sci-fi flavors that inform Haley’s later work are in full effect here, they’re assembled in manners different enough to make this both a fine record in its own right, and also a fascinating insight into the development of the distinctive Com Truise sound. It also finds the producer exploring a number of facets of that sound, from 8-bit influenced experimentalism to distinctly danceable beats — often within the confines of the same track.
Like all Haley’s work, it’s like stepping into a strange, digital parallel world While we wait for the In Decay
compilation, Ghostly International and Com Truise have repressed the vinyl version of Galactic Melt (Redux) and are offering the Cyanide Sisters EP on vinyl for the first time ever.
