Ott returns with new album and tour, shares "Harwell Dekatron"

If you've never experienced the mind-boggling psychedelia that is Ott, now is the time to get in the know.  The British producer's mix of dub, multi-cultural vocal samples, and otherworldly sonic textures was a longtime staple of Shpongle's label, Twisted Records, before he started his own Ottsonic imprint.  It's been four years since his last album, Mir, was releasedand now the wait for a follow-up is almost over.  There's no title yet, but the album will drop August 11, with a whole slew of tour dates starting right after.

Ott has also given us a first taste of the album, streaming "Harwell Dekatron," which finds him in full-on mad scientist mode, conjuring up a pulsating array of futuristic noises.  At first it feels like a slight departure from the style we're used to, but once that vocal pops up around four minutes in, it's clear Ott hasn't abandoned his signature sound.  The full album will be in your hands soon enough, and if you're in the U.S., Ott is most likely coming to a town near you.  Stream "Harwell Dekatron," and check out the full list of tour dates below.
