Experimental electronic music stalwart Clark has been putting out music for decades now, and has become synonymous with his long-time label of Warp. However, he is now stepping out of that umbrella to strike out on his own with a new label called Throttle Records. The first release on the label will be a new EP from Clark himself called E.C.S.T. T.R.A.X., which comes out September 21st. It sees him looking backwards to some of his previously favoured instruments like harpsichord, and forwards in working with virtual instrument company Spitfire Audio. Clark says about the creation of the new tracks:

“I’ve developed an intuitive working method and this was a happy accident... This might be a one-off and I don’t even know what this is, but I like the manic-ness of it. It’s unhinged like devotional music can be. I’ve been listening to a lot of Popul Vuh, and although that’s much more ambient and subtle, it’s been an influence. They capture peak ecstatic moments.”

'Piano E.C.S.T.' is the first track to be shared from the collection, and absolutely captures that manic creative spirit and peak ecstatic moments. It's unlikely you've heard a piano sound so charged up and whizzing before, but this is just the kind of thing that Clark has become so beloved for over the years, while also opening up new territories of where he could go (seemingly infinite). Listen below.
