Bruno Pronsato, one of electronic music's most vital and innovative producers,
presents The Bedroom Slant, the first full-length release under his new Archangel
moniker. This new chapter follows ''Since We Last Met'' (2010), his shimmering and
haunting collaboration as ndf with Sergio Giorgini of Benoit & Sergio, which
Pitchfork and Resident Advisor hailed and DFA chose to close its 2010 Compilation;
and Lovers Do (SONG 006CD, 2011), Pronsato's third album, which Resident Advisor
rated at 4.5 out of 5 and Pitchfork rated at 8.1, lauding the work as ''a striking and
massive statement.'' Pronsato has also released on Perlon as Half Hawaii, his
collaboration with Sammy Dee; on Telegraph as Public Lover, his collaboration
with Ninca Leece; and on Hello? Repeat as Others, his collaboration with Daze
Maxim. Archangel is a significant new chapter in the evolution of Pronsato's signature
electronic sound. The human voice acts as one of its major elements, as Pronsato steps
up to the mic to take on vocal duties, and it incorporates traditional instrumentation to a
larger degree than his previous work, with his brother David Ford's bass guitar lines
forming the rhythmic foundation for many of the new songs. Acknowledging his longheld
love, fostered by radio, of pop, rock, and post-punk in his music for the first time,
Pronsato filters his experimentalism through his formative romance with the airwaves.
Pronsato is known for creating remarkably fresh and strange music from his influences,
unrecognizable when compared to its inspiration. He wrote, produced, recorded, and
mixed The Bedroom Slant during early morning sessions in the Prenzlauer Berg studio
he shares with Benoit & Sergio. The album features collaborations with downtown
scene multi-instrumentalist Peter Gordon (Love of Life Orchestra), Randy Jones
aka Caro (co-founder of Orac Records), bassist Yonatan Levi (The Jimmy Cobb
Quartet), and Chicago-based composer and pianist David A. Powers. Artwork by
UK-based artist Marilyn Thompson. Mastered by Mike Grinser at Manmade
Mastering, Berlin.
