Hahko Shares New Album 'Horizons'

Hahko Shares New Album 'Horizons'

Chris Cudby / Thursday 28th October, 2021 11:22AM

Tāmaki Makaurau electronic producer and cheeky podcasting chap Hahko aka Isaac McFarlane (Two Cartoons, Hahko Meets Humans) stepped away from the online "hamster wheel" to get in some solid home studio time during Aotearoa's present Delta outbreak. Offering eight instrumental beatscapes primed for housebound boogieing, Hahko's third album Horizons exudes a warm and casual, contemplative glow that can only come from more than seventy days spent strolling the streets of a leafy, bird-filled, picnic-loving super city moving towards summer. Recorded DIY-style entirely on Abelton and inspired by the thriving Two Daze Discord Community (head over HERE for info on how to get involved), in a very cool move Horizons is out now exclusively over on Bandcamp before releasing via streaming services on 12th November. I'm particularly into the 'Doo'-packed 'Jurassic' — Hahko gave readers the full scoop and motivations about his latest release on his Substack newsletter, here's an excerpt (you can read more HERE)...

"It’s the end of a trilogy in which I’ve been learning as much as I can about making music on my own. This new album ‘Horizons’ is a step up from the last one ‘Arrive’, which is exactly what I’d hoped. ‘Horizons’ is not a grand artistic statement by any means, but that wasn’t the point of it. I wanted to start and finish something that sounded relatively good, that didn’t stand out as particularly amateur, or DIY. I feel like I did that.

It’s the polished version of what my first Hahko album ‘HOPEFUL’ was attempting. Relatively chill electronic music, minimal and moody at times, made for the study session or yoga class. I don’t know if i’ll return to this sound for a while, but Im happy with what I’m leaving behind." — Hahko
