Following Airships Are Organisms, which was one of our Album Picks of 2019, John Ghost are back with new music. The extraordinary Ghent based instrumental sextet, led by guitarist and composer Jo De Geest, are set to release a new single titled ‘Black Chamber (Escape to the Sun)’ on November 5th through Sdban Ultra. The track sees John Ghost team up with Dutch producer, percussionist and multi-instrumentalist Frank Wienk aka Binkbeats, who has remixed tracks by Aphex Twin, Flying Lotus and Atoms For Peace. De Geest comments:
“In the studio, Binkbeats often works with audio design. He is particularly versatile with this and has very strong personal views on the sound design of a project. Our musical styles are a nice fit as well. As a group, we also wanted to stress the productional aspects and experiment with electronic components. This collaboration with Frank worked smoothly and gave us the opportunity to approach John Ghost’s music from different angles”
John Ghost have paired ‘Black Chamber (Escape to the Sun)’ with a video filmed last March at an arts centre in Ghent. Watch it now.
