Released in late January, Skyliner is the latest presentation form New York producer Axton Frick, who’s output, spare a couple remixes, had remained nonexistent throughout 2013. Frick’s EP Passport for Starquake in 2012, filled with French-inspired dance jams, served as our introduction to his sound. Here, on Skyliner, he is in top form, returning with a smorgasbord of left-field vibes instead of coming with an easily digestible palette of disco-infused house; it’s considerably more polished than what we’ve heard from him in the past. While he does revert to tried and true house tendencies (and even those tracks are ensnared in different vibes), Frick’s latest project is an amelioration of lo-fi, funk and soul—the project, in its ultimate form, supposed to soundtrack “about love, loss, and loneliness set in New York.”

Skyliner is up for a name-your-price download on Bandcamp.
