Thomas Azier has opened up the gateway to “Ghostcity”. The Berlin-based electro-pop auteur released his new single “Ghostcity” yesterday through Casablanca Records, along with the re-release of his debut EP’s, Hylas 001 and Hylas 002. The two EP’s and “Ghostcity” are a precursor to his debut full-length, the third installment in the Hylas trilogy, which will see a release in early 2014. On “Ghostcity”, the multi-instrumentalist, producer, and artist fashions a monumental melodic hook between propulsive synths, beats, and a flurry of futuristic electronics actually recorded in an abandoned Soviet factory. Mirroring the location’s expansive and warm era of despair, it’s an amalgam of shuddering dance sheen and artful pop bliss. Get ready to get lost in the dark, shadowy alleys of “Ghostcity”.
