To capture this beautifully lit, wantonly nostalgic ode to "the past's future" with electronic artist Com Truise, we collaborated with director Babak Khoshnoud and producer Will Abramson of SF-based performance series Yours Truly. If you enjoy the sounds of 80s-era video games, Miami Vice vibes, pyramid power, ponderous night lurking, vacant industrial spaces, and serious hands-on synth skills, then you've come to the right spot on the internet. We dedicate this slow, hazy banger of an episode to future-primitives everywhere.

BIO
Com Truise is just one of the many personas of producer Seth Haley, born and raised in upstate New York. An admitted analog synth obsessive, Com Truise is the maker of an experimental and bottom-heavy style he calls “mid-fi synth-wave, slow-motion funk.” While subliminally informed by parental record collections and hints of faded electronics product design, Com Truise isn’t merely nostalgia capitalization. Within it you'll hear fragmented DNA strands of Joy Division, New Order and Cocteau Twins, but it’s like you’re hearing them through the motherboard of a waterlogged video game console—-demented, hand-smeared and modern.
