Boomkat product review for:

a taut line - Nitriding Portrait

**Lushly colourful debut LP traversing 4th World rhythms, tones and progressive electronica** "For their final release of 2013, Diskotopia is proud to present Nitriding Portrait, the debut solo album from label co-founder Matt Lyne, aka A Taut Line. As one half of the internationally acclaimed Greeen Linez project (with Chris Greenberg from the band Hong Kong In the 60s), Matt has contributed heavily to the global City Pop and MIDI-Funk resurgence of the past few years. However, the material on this A Taut Line full-length is far removed from the muzak-inspired channeling of ‘90s dance and R&B that made up Greeen Linez’s 2012 album Things That Fade. Nitriding Portrait sees A Taut Line take the lush yet lo-fi house sounds of his previous Diskotopia EPs and filter them through a hallucinatory production palette to create a kind of sultry late-night Fourth World Exotica, inspired by the humid sub-tropical summers of his adopted homeland Japan. African and Brazilian-indebted deep polyrhythmic percussion melds with Liberty Records-esque strings and esoteric melodic textures, taking the listener on a unique journey that embodies the progressive idealism of Diskotopia’s sound."
