Nym brings out downtempo’s cinematic side on new ‘Convex’ LP

Loci Records is like electronic music’s little commune in the woods, steadily churning out their own brand of world music-inspired downtempo.  With Doug Appling of Emancipator at the heart of it all, the label has recently given us albums from Lapa, Italy’s Stév, Frameworks, and now Nym, one of Appling’s closest and oldest friends.

Nym’s debut for Loci, Convex, sees him using some of the international sounds of his label mates, but even more importantly there’s a cinematic film grain to the album.  Whether it’s a spoken word sample or the tone of a violin, Convex feels epic and romanticized in subtle, modest ways.

As Nym puts it:  “This is memory music. It’s about how simple things are more complex upon closer inspection. It’s about natural ghosts in strange spaces.”
