With a flair for being a bit off in left field Chris Komus aka Lo Progression balances two vastly eclectic projects with finesse. Chris Komus’s self-titled project hones in on the crunchiness of the glitchhop / dubstep / brokenbeats / bass sounds, driven by creamy yet gritty spaced-out basslines, eccentric melodies, and intricate production chock full of glitchy edits and esoteric samples. the Lo Progression project diverges into the realm of bouncy progressive psytrance with groovy rubbery and rolling basslines, intertwined with dark melancholic melodies, ghostly pads, and a mood of enigma. Blending between genres, every track is cinematic like a score to an elaborate story, with orchestral elements and symphonic builds intertwined with futuristic basslines.
Highlights of the past year include a release on heavyweight glitch-hop label Adapted Records, “Laurentian Plateau EP”. The title track “Laurentian Plateau” hit #26 on the Beatport Glitch-Hop Top 100 Charts and the track “Winnipeg Handshake” peaked at #70 on the Beatport Glitch-Hop Top 100 Charts. The Leaurentian Plateau EP was also a Featured New Release on Beatport’s Glitch Hop Section. Chris Komus also appeared on Enig’Matik Record’s epic compilation “Painting Pictures on Silence Vol 2″ and released a well received EP “Everything Started to Go Apart EP” on Enig’Matik Records. Chris Komus has also released on 3l3Mental Records, Betamorph Recordings, Monkey Dub Recordings, Sundance Records, Noitekk, Communique, and more.
