Toxic City Music was inspired by the psychic and physical toxicity of life in late capitalism. Conceived throughout 2015 and 2016, Caminiti captured the sounds of NYC’s machinery and voices before weaving them into his studio experiments. This collection of song mutations unravels in hazy plumes and serrated edges; concrète sounds mesh with disembodied strings and corrosive electronics on "Joaquin", drones ripple under stuttering rhythms and crude synth detritus throughout "NYC Ego". On "Toxic Tape (Love Canal)", layers of digital degradation smear guitar clusters, dissolving into a dubby devotional-ambient space.
Recorded and produced by Evan Caminiti. Featuring Jefre Cantu-Ledesma on "Joaquin". Additional production and mixdowns by Rafael Anton Irisarri at Black Knoll Studios.
Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates and Mastering.
