Canadian producer Homesick is a rising footwork star, a scholarly experimental artist and has shared the live audio-visual clip of his EP, ISOLATION TAPE this month.
Shaun Lodestar, aka HomeSick, is from and based in Calgary, Canada. He studied in France at the Red Bull Music Academy. He also studies artistic applications of cutting edge Machine Learning technologies applied to visual art and music. Inspiration for his unique stylings comes from Traxman, Yves Tumor, Death Grips, Throbbing Gristle, Machinedrum, RP Boo and DJ Rashad – legends in the footwork field.
The live video for ISOLATION TAPE is a psychedelic journey of footwork stylings, meeting distorted imagery and heavily edited film, embracing surrealism and absurdism – “HomeSick guides his subjects down a line of abstract thought, inviting you to question reality while the rampant basslines find a home within your pulse. Enchantingly erratic, the EP provides auditory and visual escapism within one swoop.”
HomeSick says: “ISOLATION TAPE was my first project using machine learning tools to create both the audio and visual works. Between the creation of the 32-minute audio-visual mixtape and the seven classic-juke inspired tracks, this project has been the most rewarding so far. I hope you enjoy it.”
BSTS released the EP, while the audio-visual treat was premiered via Magnetic Magazine. Aside from his visual masterpieces, Pre-pandemic, the producer travelled across China, Europe and North America and appeared at festivals such as Sonar Music Festival and Future Forest, amongst others.
