Young Gary, Indiana, producer Jlin just released her new album Dark Energy, a mind-warping collection of progressive mutant-footwork jams, on London label Planet Mu. She recently spoke with self-titled about the genesis of each track on the record, and had this to say about working with the brilliant Holly Herndon on the menacing, anxiety-inducing "Expand", Jlin's first ever collaboration:

"Her style totally challenged mine, and that’s what made the collab work so well. Holly’s voice manipulations works so well with percussion. Intertwining the two is like a pure explosion."

Listen/download below. Jlin's Dark Energy is a dizzying, often thrilling trip into footwork's near future, and it's out now on Planet Mu.
