Premiere: Rhymos – “Particle Fever”


Since launching Whistleblower Records in 2014 label owners/longtime friends Alan Fitzpatrick, Reset Robot, Con Fraser and Rhymos (a.k.a. Aaron Binstead) have been taking things nice and easy, selectively striking when the moment felt right. This month they step up in a big way with Rhymos’ “Particle Fever,” a deep, late-night gem that resides on the border of house and techno. The effortless track is neatly stitched together with swelling basslines, woozy pads and hi-hats from heaven — what more could you possibly ask for?

Listen to the world premiere of “Particle Fever” below, and be sure to pick up Rhymos’ smoldering after-hours jam next week.

Rhymos’ “Particle Fever” is released via Whistleblower on August 10, 2015.
