We are happy to announce the release of Detroit, a new full-length album from Thoma. Influenced by jazz, world music, house, and techno, Thoma is a project that grew out of a desire between producers and long-time friends Tristan de Liège (formerly Stratus) and Benjamin Hill (Askanse) to “bring together their creative abilities and challenge themselves beyond their solo efforts.” Relocating from a small island near Vancouver in British Columbia to Los Angeles, the duo recorded their debut full-length with an array of synths— with a strong focus on modular synthesis—samples, processed acoustic instruments, woodwinds, and upright bass. More recently, Benjamin moved to Detroit and new Thoma material was crafted there, drawing more on the techno and house roots that are so pervasive in the Detroit music scene.
Detroit will be released on April 26, 2019 via Future Archive Recordings, with the 1st single No Resolution available on March 22. You can learn more about Thoma on our website.
